Spring At Joan's Garden

It is challenge time again at Joan's Garden and we were supposed think spring! (And use the colors blue and orange!)  Now, I must admit orange is not a favorite color of mine, but  I am think outside of my box! LOL! The cute little image is a freebie Precious Moment coloring page. They have so many free images that I am wondering why I keep buying more!The orange paper is from my scrap box and the blue background if from Debbie Mum. I punched out some butterflies with a MS punch and add a little glitter and a pear for bling. The beautiful flowers are from my dear friend (and artist) Glenda at http://glendabrooks.blogspot.com/ you should check out her lovely work and her handmade flowers are beautiful. A sheer ribbon finished off my card. I hope it makes you think spring! I am entering this card at the following challenges:

A beautiful, bright and cheerful card Patty.
A blue and orange colour combo would've sent me running to the hills but you've done a fabulous job.
Sweet image, these take me back to my childhood.

Love & hugs
