Spring has Sprung

I am doubling up on a post.  The challenge this week on Art Impressions blog is "Spring has Sprung".  Well I have been thinking on this one for a couple of weeks (like Winnie the Pooh, think, think...think think think!) and it was a true challenge for me. 
 I didn't want to do the typical flowers and stacked Spellbinders (though I do like that look in a card) but with the title "Spring has SPRUNG" I felt it needed more with a feeling of how I feel as spring has blossomed here, and so early, and so many blooms! (Sympathy to those with pollen allergies) So I will delay no longer.  Here is the card, it folds to fit in a standard A2 envelope and I purposely left off any 3D embellishments so that it folds flat.  Also, the bushes were created by using the tree stamp.
I am including the youtube video that demonstrates how to do the fold. Very easy and simple. I hope you like this post....and any questions on how I did this, just leave me a comment and I will respond, I promise.  Also if you would rather email me, or have problems leaving a comment, my email is  Thanks for looking!
