Happy First Day of Spring!

Good Morning and a very happy Spring to everyone! I have a very simple CAS card today, made for the CAS162 challenge over at SCS. The challenge this week is a sketch, and a very simple one at that! I used a violet bouquet stamp from SCACD and framed it with white card stock after cutting it with petite ovals and embossing it with the Swiss dots ef. The sentiment is retired SU small script and was stamped with Memento Cottage Ivy ink. The image was colored with Copics. CAS and so easy to put together - I hope you like it :)
Enjoy your day - I'm off to get those dreaded taxes done (hate it!)
