Mother Nature is No Fool

They say that April showers bring May flowers, but in Chicago, it's been known to snow in April AND May! However, from the view out my window, I believe the snow is finished, and Spring is finally ready to welcome us into our gardens and short-sleeved shirts. Of course, it is April Fools' Day, and she may just "punk" us with a cruel joke, but I have faith that she is above all that nonsense!
So today, in honor of Spring, I have created an Easter card using a digi image from Angie's Digi Stamps. It is called "Birds in Bird Bath" and I thought it portrayed the essence of Spring. Each morning in Spring, we awake to birds singing and sun shining. Colors start to peek out from freshly green grass. 
My card is bright with Spring colors, and showcases a birds frolicking in their bath, while butterflies dance in the breeze and flowers face toward heaven.
Angie's is this month's guest sponsor at Your Scrapbook Place challenge blog, where the theme is Anything Goes. My card for this challenge is a Z-Fold card

As you can see from the picture, a simple fold outward on your front card face gives the whole thing a special look when opened. Here, I chose to match the inside with the outside paper doily, popping the sentiment where my Copic-colored image is centered on the front.

Check out all the cute images at Angie's Digi Stamps. And spend some time crafting with the windows open, so you can hear those birds in their Spring chorus, and catch that breeze. Then go over to Your Scrapbook Place challenge blog and come play with us!! One random winner gets a prize from Angie's!! 

 Did I mention that my birthday is in April?? I am having a big birthday bash, with challenges, games and especially PRIZES. Check out my April 1 post HERE for your chance to win from today through APRIL 15!!
