{SS} #159: Spring Flowers

Hi everyone!!
How are you doing this morning??  
I am beat..I am exhausted....We went to go to visit our friend Jimmy, who left us 2 years ago. 
The drive up there is really beautiful, but the man it's a LONG ways!!!  We couldn't stay long to today, so it was a quick and long turn around!!  

Today, we have a new challenge for you at SweetStamps
This weeks theme is: 
Spring Flowers
I think we are all ready for Spring!!  This cold weather and rain is really getting the best if us. 
I am using the beautiful Poppy Vase, which I colored with my Copic Markers.  Our annual Poppy Festival is coming up in April, which reminds me I have to buy tickets!!  Can not wait to go!!
The beautiful paper is from Kaisercraft: Hippy Girl
I kept the card very minimal, so to keep the focus on the image.
