Take Joy in the Little Things

Good Monday Morning!
Yesterday's race didn't quite go how I had hoped for Jeff but that's Dega...lol It was VERY exciting...especially that last lap...ack!
Before the race stared I went downstairs to work on all the Viva La Verve April Challenges on SCS.
I'll just show you my favourite card of the bunch.
This was the 5th Challenge to make a Spring card with the layout provided. I sooooooooooo needed a SPRING card yesterday after seeing the snow fly for a good part of the afternoon...blah!
Stamps: Petals and Stems; Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, WW and Imaginisce dp; Inks: Real Red, So Saffron, Black, Wild Wasabi; Accessories: Circle nesties, White Brad, Martha Stewart Pearls, Wild Wasabi Ribbon, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
