Impatient for the Bright Colors of Spring

I am so impatient for Spring to arrive. Last month we went to Seatlle to check out the university there with our daughter.  When we landed, our eyes were dazzled by all the GREEN on the ground and in the trees.  Flowers were blooming in a riot of color. It was awesome.
When we returned to the Chicago area, we were happy that almost all of the snow had melted, but it was so BROWN and dull and blahh...
So in anticipation of my location getting a much needed change of season, I have used a Squigglefly digi image by artist Pamela Lehto called Dogwood Angel and Spring's brightest colors.  In fact, the challenge on the Squigglefly Blog is to make a card using a Squigglefly image and bright Spring colors.
I embossed yellow cardstock and popped it onto green cardstock base. My image is colored with Copics I used part of the image, which comes with wings and extra dogwood flowers.
I went a little crazy with embellishments, but I am so sick of winter, I just had to jazz my card up with jewel flourishes and flowers and a butterfly.  I even highlighted my card and the angel's wings with white gel pen!
I think I achieved my goal of using bright Springtime colors, don't you?!  So, get out your inks and papers and markers, grab a Squigglefly image and brighten up your day with a new card.  Show it off at the Squigglefly Challenge blog for your chance to win free digis.
