Where is spring???

I thought it was coming, especially with last week's good weather, but it has turned back to gloomy dark and most of all, very rainy weather now. I want spring to come!! Like yesterday. Pretty please?? I miss being able to sit outside and have my coffee after lunch there. We are lucky enough to have a south west facing garden, but right now, there's not too much to enjoy there.... Hello spring??? Can you come please?
This card I made following a sketch on one of the yahoogroups I belong to. I was soooo in the mood for bold colors! The text at the bottom means "congratulations" so it's a card for many occasions. Also, a challenge on another group was to use the new things you bought at the ArtSpecially show, and that's where I scored the flower brush stamp from Hero Arts.
The printed papers on the card both come from one of those little 6x6 pattern paper pads that I just had to have, just coz it was so cheap. You know? I know you know!! LOL
But now I find myself struggling finding a good use for most of the papers. They look...umm, how should I put this? Some are just ugly, some are strange colors and difficult to match with other things. So I decided to dive in anyway and use some of it. The text paper is from the same pad, and by cutting the vertical strips in 2x6 and cutting text strips, I had enough to make 3 of these cards. :-))
And actually, I quite like the result. The colors are bright and remind me of how my garden should look soon if the weather clears up. I've used a new acquisition. I've used some older papers that I found hard to work with. All in all, I'm pretty pleased.
What do you think of it? And how's the weather where you are??

I agree, it is bright and cheerful. I know the feeling about papers, they sometimes are a challenge and we are all such collectors, lol.
