Spring Time Challenge at The Paper Shelter

It is beginning to feel a lot like spring here in South Texas...who am I kidding? It is already starting to feel like summer. It doesn't get very cold here so I appreciate every little bit that we have. In honor of the start of spring the new challenge at The Paper Shelter is to create a Spring Time card.  As always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering you a fabulous prize of $30 to spend on their website if you use a Paper Shelter image or 3 digis if you use another.  Fabulous prize either way!! 

 My mom's birthday was yesterday so I made this card for her special day.  Last year I got her a shadow box that holds 4x6 pictures, I thought this would be a good way for her to display the cards I give her.  However, me working on such a small card area is always a bit of a challenge, I like a lot of space:)
 I used Spring In the Heart by TPS (I just think she is so sweet) and colored it with Copics.  I sponged the clouds using a cloud template I  drew and cut out.  The paper is My Minds Eye Dolled Up and the butterfly punch is Martha Stewart.
