Hello Spring!

Hello.  Happy Spring!

Yay...spring has arrived and I've got this beautiful image for a card to celebrate the season.


I see the clematis (armandii) vines blooming everywhere around my neighbourhood, so I've incorporated their flowers into my card.  I love clematis!!!


A closer look at the digital stamp from A Day For Daisies.


This image is called Morning Dew Fairy.

I've done my colouring with my coloured pencils this time, except for a couple of markers that I used to create the dotted background.  I've added glitter to the fairy wings.
