And We're Hopping!

Today, we are hopping with The Stamping Boutique, and our theme is Spring Fling.  Are you as done with winter as I am?!  Oh yes, I am D-O-N-E!  I was so excited to use these Spring images and colors!  And the weather here in the Chicago area was actually cooperating, too.  We had 40's in the middle of February!  And we return to our regularly-scheduled programming of the Spring Fling Blog Hop... If you came here from Melissa's blog, you're right on track. If not, you'll want to start at Amanda's blog and leave some love on each blog, because there is FREE STUFF up for grabs!  The last stop will be The Stamping Boutique Challenge blog, and there will be an Inlinkz for you to post your comment with your warm feelings.  But hurry, you only have until tomorrow (2/20/11) at 6PM EST to get entered to win.  Enough yabbering, on to the card!
For this Spring Fling Hop, Amanda gave us the fabo sketch, and I did my best to stick to it, and I'm proud to say I was pretty darn close!  This card is so shimmery IRL - I wish my camera wouldn't try to auto-correct me all the time... grrrr!  Anyway, if you look close, you can catch that shimmery vibe. When you're done, you want to head over to see what Miranda has cooked up (warning - it's a CUTE one!)... Enjoy!
