Spring Themes are budding at Squiggle Fly with Cheryl Alger

This week at Squiggle Fly we all get to show our "Spring Fever" by entering our Spring Theme cards--St. Patrick's Day, Easter, or any General Spring Theme like flowers, gardening...There are lots of wonderful stamps in the store with these topics!
The image I used is from one of my favorite artists at SF, Cheryl Alger and it's called My Favorite Kind of Weather.  I used my chisel tip on my blue copic so that I could "streak" the color and hopefully make it look like planks on a house and so the grass would look like it was mowed.  I added a terrific die cut from Memory Box called Orchard Tree Frame-love love love it!  Actually saw it online on a card, contacted the creator and she gave me the information so that I could purchase it!  The image has some flowers already on it but I've added some extra buttons, minus the shank and a dragonfly and bee.  This just reeks Spring to me-hope you enjoy it!
I'm sending this to Sassy Cheryl's Show-me-Thursday challenge.
