Taking Time For ME

Just like this cute image from Addicted to Stamps, who's taking time out of her busy schedule to relax with a bubbly bath, I'm taking time to unwind by making a Spring card.  I received this wonderful image from Holley in her February Blog Candy Blitz.  I love this image and can foresee a lot of coloring going on in my craft room in the future!!
Her name is Bath Time Kitty by artist Sherri Baldy.  Although the picture is of bath delights, the floral patterned paper, fleur-de-lis frame and flower spray all say garden, and that's why I'm uploading it to the Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge Blog.  Their challenge is to give your project a "Garden Patch" look and feel.  Not only did I use up excess flowers on my card, but my "going green" tip for the day is to save even the smaller lengths of felt borders, as shown on my card.  Just a one and a half inch piece of felt border made a great stand in for some greenery among my flowers, turning it from a splash of flowers to a spray of flowers!
