"Happy Spring Day" card for Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Saturday everybody,
It's spring I can't believe it's going so fast but 'he' who am I to complain.
I love spring!
Thursday it was a warm and sunny day but Friday and today it's poring like crazy but it smells like spring.
Today I would like to share a card.
I really like the burlap border so much and I wanted to layer it so it looks like real burlap and that worked out really well as I may say so. I cut out four pieces and layered them on top of each other one a little higher then the other.
For this card I used the gorgeous new "Happy Trails" by BoBunny it's a animal collection but you will see it's so versatile. I wanted to make the sun the center piece of my card. For that I used two different doily dies.
I went with the challenge of this week "think spring" on Cheery Lynn Designs blog.
I'm totally into yellow at the moment it brings so much joy to your projects, you really need to try if you haven't already.
Cheery Lynn Designs dies used:
  I hope you all play along in Cheery Lynn Designs 124th challenge "Think Spring" you can go lots of different ways with that one and in the process you can win a $20 shopping spree.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments I really appreciate them every single time.
Have a wonderful and sunny weekend,

Love
