Flourishes Release Week Challenge

We are cruising right into February already.. Can you believe it.  This month over at Flourishes the Release Week Challenge is to be inspired by the above photo.
I am thinking we are all ready for the big winter thaw.
 February Release Challenge

I chose the Year In Flowers 1 set.  I love the pretty crocus stamp in this set.  I stamped
I stamped the sentiment from the Kids Play set. I used my Spellbinders Eyelet Circles for my sentiment.  Come  join us for this week's challenge.  Create a card inspired by the Winter Thaw photo..Upload to the Flourishes Blog for a chance to win the entire new release.  
Flourishes is having a store wide sale..Check it out:
