Spring is in the air /RRR 92

 Is it summer yet???  you would think so when I went to the school to pick up my grand daughter, both sides of the road all you could see was 2 feet of snow in everyones yards, and there were kids walking home in short sleeve and sleeveless shirts..we are tough here in Maine. it was 4o degrees and it felt great..
I did not stay out to enjoy it though, I wanted to stay inside and play with paper.  I made 2 cards, because of cards I so on Pinterest..Flower pot cards as seen below..

after I made the flower pots I saw that Really Reasonable ribbon was having a challenge  "Flowers or Buttons and Bows".. So I decided to color one of the images I had from Paper Nest Dolls.."Bubblegum Emma"

Supplies: Purple Really Reasonable Ribbon
Martha Stewart branch punch
small butterfly punch
flower from my stash
rhinestones from my stash
Spectrum Noir markers
papers from Close To my Heart
paper pad.My Minds Eye ..Indie Chic. Saffron
