Waiting for Spring

Happy Saturday! It's mid winter and I'm thinking of spring.....hoping for spring.  And when you don't get spring for another 3 months - you have to create it.
Today's card uses  "Soft Spring", which is a Host set from the Annual Catalogue.  I'd like to imagine these are delphiniums in my back garden (though the leaves are different) and that I have a lot more than one dragonfly flitting about.

The colour combination comes from the Color Throwdown this week.  I was a bit concerned about the grey, but I stamped the images in Slate Grey instead of black before stamping over with their colour.  It does make for a softer looking card.  I used Granny Apple Green which I thought was a bit perkier than it shows up here....the green is suppose to be more lime.  The flowers are stamped in Melon Mambo and Highland Heather.

There are just two days left of this challenge if you are interested in trying it out. Or tuck the colours away for future inspiration.

Hope your day is going well,
If you are also in the middle of winter just remember we're in the home stretch now.
Thanks for visiting,
