Spring is here....

At Patties Creations this month, 
you have a choice with our monthly challenge. It's
"Eastertime or Springtime."

I chose Springtime...

I absolutely adore this image - and have done, for a long time.
It's called "sweet nectar" 
I have lots of these plants in my garden....
Its called bleeding heart and I think I have about 
5 of the pink ones and 2 white ones. 

It's a real spring flower. 
Infact, mine is peeping up from it's soily winter blanket as I type.
I shall add some pics when it's grown and full. 

The hummingbirds are so lovely too. 
The image actually only comes with one hummingbird...the bigger one.
I flipped the image and made it smaller,
because as soon as I saw this image, I knew I wanted
it on the front of an anniversary card for my parents-in-law.
Their anniversary is on 2nd April.. they had a springtime wedding!
I decoupaged the larger hummingbird on 3d foam, to make it stand out a little. 

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
