IT'S SPRING! WELL, MAYBE FOR SOME OF US :)

HI EVERYONE!
Before I begin I would just like to say a BIG hello to the new followers who came on board 
my blog in the last few days ! So hi guys, and thanks so much, hope you come by often:)
But I can't forget to mention my other followers who have been with me for quite sometime, you are wonderful....but I think you already know that:)))
Anyway, on to more pressing issues...Cards, challenges and other things..
Here is a card I whipped up today using the really cute 
"Home Sweet Home" digi  from The Paper Shelter.
I used lots of rich browns and blues for the outside of the image and coloured the digi with bright colours to give it that spring touch..
The poem of Spring is something I also whipped up when I was sitting in my backyard.
I did a lot of distressing and tore the paper almost to the corner and added a 
piece of an old page I had in my stash..
 I added some roses, the middle one I made using linen paper and distressed it with blues and browns..the other 2 roses are store bought. And the leaves I punched out of my 3 leaf punch.
The patterned paper is from Kaisercraft - Prairie Lane collection and so are the  turquoise pearls. The ribbon is from inque ribbon.
As you know I love challenges, so I'm off to visit some great challenge sites:
