Happy Spring

     I had to enter the March Going Buggy Challenge....Enfy's posts are just too hilarious, and she is just wicked enough to throw this "use something on your card that wasn't intended for cardmaking"challenge  to spark our creativity!!  I looked at the challenge, and as a newbie to this game I thought...."OH LORD...she couldn't have picked a harder project!!!   I decided to go ahead and make a card with as many weird objects as I could.  It might not be pretty, but hope it is unusual enough to win!! 
    The flower centers are water bottle caps.  The red I painted with Delta Perm Enamel Country Tomato, the yellow with Plaid Indoor/Outdoor Dandelion Yellow paint. I used a Stampin Up & EK Success paper punch for the petals.  The flower stalks are bamboo party picks painted with Delta Ceramcoat Leaf Green color.  The leaves, believe it or not, are the paper wrappers from Halls Mentholyptus Cough Drops painted with the same Leaf Green color!!  The sentiment is from the Inky Antics Carrot Bunny HoneyPOP Set.
