Think Spring!

Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge this week was to make a card that shows signs of spring. When I think of spring, I think green--grassy lawns, budding leaves--so I pulled out my new Certainly Celery ribbon and dp. I chose this sentiment because I am so happy spring is on its way!

Stamps: So Happy (Verve)
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Delicate Dots dp (SU)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware (SU), ribbon (SU)
