Good day

This was a quick card for a friend of my boy who had an appendix operation this past week. As usual he didn't gave me a lot of time. It is spring here in SA and we had some lovely rain too! I used it in my inspiration for the choices of my papers and colours!  The DP is from First Edition - Spring drop and the rest are from my stash. I added some bugs to bring it all together! Digi is from Digistamp4Joy.

Challenges I'm joining:
Fussy And Fancy #151 - Flowers
As You Like it Challenge - Favourite Brights or pastels & why (Since only have boys I tend to balance the pinks & blues in my life)
