Wishing For Spring ...

Where, oh where, is spring?? Not here in Ontario at the moment, so I decided to make a pretty spring card. I treated myself to some new crafty fun - Spectrum Noir markers! I'm really enjoying them and finding them easy to use. This is my first real go with them! For this card, I colored my image using LV1, LV2 and LV3. I've been doing a lot of 'youtube' watching, let me tell ya! I love how this turned out. I also treated myself to a new Spellbinders Nestability with my 50% off Michaels coupon!! 
So here's what I created ...

And I would love to enter this in the following challenges:
