Swing into Spring

If you are looking for my {PIN}Spirational Challenge, please scroll up.

It is the 15th of the month and that means we get to show off a new Dueling Darlings challenge. For the April Challenge, Suzy and Terry are the Darlings who decided on the theme.  Terry is a Darling and Suzy is a Diva, my team!

The theme or challenge they picked is "Swing into Spring or Spring".  This is what Suzy wrote for the Divas:   So, our theme is "swing into spring" or "spring". Not sure how we decided to word it! Some of you haven't even seen spring yet!!  The second part of your challenge is to let us know what your favorite dessert that was made usually in the Spring....maybe something that was only made at Easter time. If you want...share the recipe! We can always use more dessert recipes!! 

Here is the inside of my card--I used the sweet die cut that Suzy sent:

I really do not have a spring-time food that I crave--however, I do look for the start of all of the fresh fruit that starts to arrive at our local stores.  I also look forward to the local farmer's markets starting up later this spring! 

I hope Suzy and the other Darlings enjoy my card.

I like how you used different colors on your card. The layout works well with the image. I too like the fresh fruit this time of year!

Barb, sensational card! I love the layout and how you've colored up the sweet girl - LOVELY!

I almost put fresh fruit, too! But then my daughter whipped up these yummy vegan cupcakes and that was it for the fruit, LOL!

Happy Spring!

Loving your layout and how you added the sweet flowers on the front and the die inside. I love your teams kit- great DSP and love the theme as well!

Beautiful card, Barb! Love those papers and the way you colored, layered and die cut that darling image. Great use of those embellishments from flowers, to ribbon to the swirl on the inside of the card! So glad to be in the DDD's with you. You are amazing!!!
