Happy Spring

Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I'm posting late today...well actually tonight.  It's almost 8:00 pm here and it's been a long day.  My sweet granddaughter, Emma had tonsils and adenoids removed and tubes put in her ears today.  I am very happy to say that she has done wonderfully!  She has really been a trooper and I am one proud Nonna. I'm also a thankful Nonna - many prayers have been answered today!
So, I'm going to get on with my post and I'll try to do some blog visits tomorrow.  This card was created for the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenges Blog:

I used the super cute Spring Groves stamp by Paper Smooches to create this fun, springy, shaker card.

I did a bit of watercoloring for the background of my card. The tree trunk is colored with Copic Markers and the top of the tree is paper pieced.

Well, this Nonna is tired and ready to wrap up the day.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll be seeing you soon!
