So Much Happy...

 Happy Monday everyone!  I am so excited....we actually have temps that are above freezing and the thaw has begun!  There is hope for Spring after all!  I was seriously beginning to wonder...though we are still getting snow, at least it is melting and not adding to the tons we already have! To celebrate, I decided to get out some Spring themed papers and play along with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!  This sketch challenge ends today, so you need to hurry if you want to join in! Here is a look at the original sketch design-

My card was created with the So Much Happy paper line by Close To My Heart.  The fun, bright colors were perfect for a touch of Spring!  I cut a piece of floral paper into a 3" x 3" square and then cut it into 1" x 1" squares.  I adhered the pieces to a Sapphire piece of cardstock.  I popped up my layer with dimensional tape before adding to my Lemon cardstock.  This card would be perfect for using up those scraps you have been hoarding! Here is a look at the patterns included in the So Much Happy paper packet-
