Spring = Get Well Soon

Yep, it's that time again to send those well wishes out for all those suffering from colds, flu, allergies, and more during the new Spring season.  It seems to be hitting hard in my neck of the woods.  I am  feeling down today but have a card I made Thursday to share with you that ironically is a get well card.  Maybe I projected this upon myself?  Just kidding.  I don't  want to start that sort of thinking.  It is what it is. 

***Don't forget to leave a comment on my blog post here to win the hot air balloon  digi image!***

This card was made for the Play Date Color Challenge and  The Kraft Journal "Baby It's Spring"  challenge.
Here is the color challenge photo.  How cool is that little outdoor area?  I like how they hung the blue pots all around.  My only question is how does a short person water those?  Obviously, this applies to me because beyond the third row, it would be challenging.  I guess that's why the chair is there right?  To stand on and water?  LOL!  ;-)This would be a great space to utilize throughout your day.  Envisioning  coffee, a snack, supper, or even reading a book with a glass of your favorite beverage. 
Now my idea of Spring may not be the first thought you think of when seeing my card.  However, the colors and butterfly remind me of this glorious time of year.  Also the appearance of white again.  I guess I am kinda a Southern girl with my upbringing being no white after Labor Day.
