Is It Spring Yet?

Cold, wet, and weary of the winter weather. Even the house seems to have stayed chilly, despite having the heating on. Or is it that I'm just tired? I do know that I would like to see the start of some better weather.  Maybe 2013 is going to be a year where we get temperatures above 15degrees C in the summer months. I can dream can't I?
To lift my mood, I went for some bright sunshine colours. Yellow that heralds the daffs showing off, and acid green of new sprouted leaves and pale gold of the spring sun.
What did I do with these colours?
Stepping into spring with this gorgeous image called Spring Goddess by Rick St Dennis.
The sketch used as my inspiration is from My Time To Craft challenges.
The BP is a digi from Bearly Mine with yellow and white roses printed onto pearlised paper . The flowers are home made ribbon roses mounted onto paper flowers from do-crafts and surrounded with little seed pearls before a light dusting of  gold glamour dust. A TH die cut flower as the mount for the sentiment, stamped in green onto yellow card - also dusted with gold.
Some embossed white pearlised card and yellow lace. Lengths of the same lace and ribbon from one of the  roses were used to embellish the steps, mounted onto pearlised deep green.

The image was coloured with promarkers with just a touch here and there of glittery gel pen.

I'd like to enter this into the challenges at

Bearly Mine - Tic Tac Toe - four in a row - Lots of Layers, pearls, stamped the sentiment, Lace. Hopefully the senti counts
