Hints of spring

After our snowstorms, we are seeing hints of spring. Hurray.  I'm celebrating with a spring-themed card.

I own exactly one jar of Flower Soft -- it's called sweet pea, and it's perfect for doing cherry trees. So every spring, I end up pulling it out to make a spring flower card.  These bare trees by Posh Impressions make a perfect canvas for the Flower Soft.

I used Sketch Saturday Sketch #297, using the sprig of ivy in place of the strip of paper shown on the sketch. 

Ink: Chestnut Roan colorbox chalk.
Dies: Tim Holtz  ivy; scalloped circle Nesties
Paper by DCWV

This card is for the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday #297, sketch
Totally Papercraft #207, Spring
Word Art Wednesday #120, Anything goes
Sister Act #45, Anything goes
