The Paper Shelter - The Florist

Today was a true taste of Spring.  It hit 71 degrees here in North Georgia.  It felt really nice outside.  I hope it's not getting warm too quickly.  Sometimes that happens and all the trees & flowers bud, then we get another frost and they get frost bitten.  I loved the sun shining through my craft room window.  This is a card I finished today.

I used one of the digistamps I won from The Paper Shelter.  She is called The Florist.  The Paper Shelter is having a Design Team call right now.  I created this card with the thought of entering.  Either way I love this little digi.  I think this card can be used for many occasions, birthday, get well, thinking of you, friendship, etc.
