What would Barb do??

Spring is finally coming!!  Yesterday we had temperatures in the 60's here in St. Louis, and I had windows open.  My kitty had a marvelous time watching birds.  
For her, it must be like BlueRay tv instead of looking through glass.  

There's a blog hop coming up where the challenge is to make a spring card.  This was my first time using a sponge blender --for the sky.
There's quite a bit of depth as I used foam dots for one of the clouds as well as the fussy-cut flowers.  The card was almost done and I asked myself the usual question, "What would Barb do?"  My best friend Barb introduced me to card making a year an a half ago.  She is really a pro!  Out came another layer of paper, a darling button and a tiny little tag that I cut myself.  Barb always has lots of different details on her cards.  And forget just one layer!

One last detail:  the flowers were just begging for happy faces.

Flowers: Multiple stamped with images from Friendship Jar/Spring and colored with Copics
Sky:  Sponged with PTI Hawaiian Shores ink
Paper and cardstock: PTI  Harvest Gold print and Hawaiian Shores
