Spring is Here! (Well, not quite)

I sure wish Spring was here!  We are getting so stir crazy staying inside day after day, and this Spring will be a huge milestone for our little family.  My husband will begin the Maintenance phase of his Cancer Protocol and will be able to re-enter society come May.  It has been a long road, and we are so anxious for warmer weather.  Anyway, I was excited to work on something other than Valentine's for a bit, and the Spring challenge from Bitten By the Bug 2 allowed me to do that.  I also used this card for the Paper Playtime challenge of "Border Punches".  I was excited to use the Walk in My Garden cartridge (I got it for Christmas) and this wheelbarrow is a fun cut.  The border was made using the Spellbinders Edgeabilities, which I love so much more than actual border punches.  I mixed and matched the Classic Scallop with the Classic Ric Rac.  This card was very refreshing to make!
