Hello Spring!

This card tried really hard to be a single layer card, but I just couldn't leave it alone and ended up adding a couple of layers. I have admired the CAS cards at the Less is More Challenge blog and have wanted to participate in one of their challenges. Last week their challenge was 'Frame It' , which inspired the creation of this card, however I didn't make the challenge deadline. Flourishes 'Timeless Tuesday' challenge this week is 'Bring On Spring' and the Play Date Cafe colour challenge is 'Welcome Spring!'. Love the colours!

My starting point for this 'spring' card was the beautiful Hydrangea stamp set from Flourishes. The stores are full of brightly coloured spring flowers right now including multi-hued hydrangea plants. Love them!
