Hello Sunshine!...

to view an image up-close, please click on a photo
It's still cold outside and I am sorry to say that I am so over Winter. I can see the sun peeking through the clouds and I'm wishing it would just burst through. Lucky for me, Verve is hosting a Color Me Spring Dare and Wee Memories' Scrappy Saturday Challenge is a Free Your Creativity Challenge -- I thought I'd make a card to bring a little sunshine into my day. I created a little riot of flowers for this sweet elephant to peer over and cut out a few blooms to add some dimension. Originally, I had a very elaborately embossed shadowbox frame to go over this scene, but when I showed my husband, he suggested leaving it clean and simple (I just love it when he gets "into" my papercrafting!) So, while Winter is keeping Spring at bay outside, I can pretend to have a teensy bit of sunshine inside.
