Phindy's Place ~ Spring Is On Its Way

Hi All!
This week's challenge at Phindy's is SPRING!!
I dug into my paper packs and used lots of bright springy colors for todays card.
The punches are Martha Stewart and the Paper is mainly DCWV.
The image is Phindy's and the colors Prismacolors.
I did go a little crazy on the stitching but I wanted an applique quilted effect.

A close up of the cutie:

I would like to enter this in:
Pile it On: Breezy
I hope you can all join in! 
 I look forward to seeing your creations. :-)

I've just spotted your ducks in the side bar with the mother duck using the hairdryer,I'd love to know where you found it,it's such a giggle sitting there for all to see.I collect duck ornaments,I once had a friend name one of her ducks after me,would love to have my own but unfortunately that just isn't possible. :-(
Have a great day,Julie.x
