Mo's DP2 Challenge ~ Spring Colors with Handmade Flowers

Hi Everyone!
I'm back with a card for Mo's DP2 Challenge this week which is
 Spring Colors With Handmade Flowers
(and no I didn't choose this theme. lol)
The image is Mo Manning and the sentiment is by the Doodle Pantry.

The papers are DCWV  and K&Co. and the flowers are my own creations. You can see that I crocheted one of them. The others are ones I cannibalized  from big silk bouquets  and reassembled with buttons.
The image I colored with Prismacolors.


A close up of the flowers:



So I hope you can play along!
I would like to play along with:
PLay Date Cafe: blue, rust and green
Crafty Creations: In the garden

Oh, Dorcas, this card puts a big smile in my face! It´s like spring in person... today we have sunshine and blue sky, so your card fits to my mood perfectly today!
And the sentiment is sooo sweet - I like how you mimic the sun with this big yellow circle behind the picture!
Great card!
Have wonderful day!
Uli

Beautiful scene and beautiful coloring. I can just imagine a day, not too warm and not too cool, with a nice breeze, and just being a kid. I love the sentiment and circle, too. Hugs, dj
