Celebrate Spring Card

I think it is finally officially Spring in Central Wisconsin. We woke up to 5 inches of snow unexpectedly yesterday, but it is all gone already and the sun is shining. I am celebrating with a card I made with some neglected pieces that were laying on my bed in my craft room. I was playing with mixing my Brusho Crystal Colors with my Bisters and this piece was not my favorite. But I decided to tear the edges off, sponge with a teal ink and attach to a purple card for a colorful background. I had previously cut the flowers from Memory Box and the Celebrate from Cherry Lynn Designs so I attached them for a simple but pretty celebration card.

I am entering this card in the "Recycle Something" challenge at Open-Minded Crafting and the Spring Flowers challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

Not sure why it wasn't your favorite Karen the background looks like iris' in the background - just beautiful. I've never used those brusho crystals but you are sure doing some beautiful cards with them. Thanks for joining the Recycle Challenge at Open Minded Crafting Challenge.
