Card Concept #4 & Simply Create Too #55

I know many of those on the stamping blogs I follow have been having one heck of winter.  So much snow!  I've seen the pics!  Around here (Southern CA), we wonder which day was winter.  I think it hit in the 30's one night since Thanksgiving.  I think.  The trees are budding, allergies are starting.  It's Spring around here.  And this card definitely says SPRING.

I am entering this in two challenges.  Card Concept #4 is looking for floral cards.  This is barely floral, but I did add three little spring blooms.  Simply Create Too #55 has a really fun challenge.  They are looking for St. Patty cards (darn, no stamps!) or something with green.  I can use most of my cards, since that's the color I used on 95% of my cards. 

I stenciled the leaves with Distressed Ink Peeled Paint.  The flowers are from Stephanie Bernard Sizzix combo (stamps and dies)  that I bought at Hobby Lobby last weekend.  Hobby Lobby is opening a store near me on Friday.  I was out of town this past weekend and saw one that was calling my name to go visit.  I used the Momemento Dew Drops Dandelion ink.
