M5D Card..If I Had A Flower For Every Time I Thought Of You....

I am not sure about the weather across the country, but we have had a wonderful taste of spring here...maybe even summer with the temps in the 80's, so in celebration of this glorious season, I give you my floral garden card...Seems to have been one of my favorite things to do lately.  I can't get enough of the beauty of spring, combined with elegance, femininity and a touch of vintage.  The floral image is a McMahon Five Design's digi image.  Isn't it lovely?  You can almost smell the wonderful fragrance of those flowers.  The M5D has recently gotten an amazing stock of new items that I could not resist stocking up on.  If you haven't already been there, now is a great time to have a look at all the wonderful products offered. 


What a lovely sentiment this is.  One of my favorites, and it is surrounded by gorgeous prima roses that adds such a soft touch to this card







Thank you very much for taking a moment to visit with me.  I hope you enjoy the view and that you will stop back again soon.  Please leave a comment if you would like to share with me your thoughts on my card.  Have a beautiful day.
