Plant a garden of happiness

I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to be a guest designer for the My Besties Germany challenge site, and was gifted this image to use.   Going through the winter doldrums right now, it felt uplifting to create something more "spring-y"!  As you can see, I colored this cute image with pastels (prisma pencils), using flowery background paper, added flowers, a couple doilies for a more feminine look, and then a couple pink butterflies to complete the scene.  Hope this card cheers you, as much as it did me.
