My buttercups are sprouting and some are even blooming with the warm weather we are having here in Alabama.  Too warm for this time of the year.  So I decided to make a spring card and used the sentiment from Word Art Wednesday on the front.  The flowers are actually die-cut stickers that I distressed and added some sparkle to.  The picture does not show the true colors as they are very bright and beautiful.
As you can see on the inside of my card I again used the die stickers and distressed them, then sparkled them up.  The verse is one I found on the internet:  " It's nearly here! It's coming fast! The robins will appear at last, Oh Wondrous Joy! I too shall sing! And join in Nature's "Song for Spring" "

These are the supplies I used:
Card Stock, Embossed Paper, Ribbon and Die-Cut Stickers - My Stash
Dies - Spellbinder and Cheery Lynn Designs
Sentiments - Word Art Wednesday and Internet
Distressing Ink - Tim Holtz, "Tea Bag"
Glitter - Ranger Stardust Stickles
Adhesive - Sookwang

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
