Word Play Saturday Challenge - March

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by! And a warm welcome to  my new followers!

It's already time for a new word here at my word play challenge, but before I get to that, I would first like to announce the winner of the February Word Play Challenge. Thanks to all of you that joined me in my Balloons Challenge.
The lucky number chosen by is #10. That would be 

Congratulations Berni, you won the cute Whimsy Stamp illustrated my Meljen's from my collection. Please email me your address including country so  can mail it out to you. (ellibelle_blog at yahoo dot com)

Now onto the March challenge - with spring just around the corner, I thought that


would be the perfect word for this challenge. 
To play along, simply create a card or other papercrafting projects, inspired by this month's word.

Here is what I made.

Products used:
Stamps: Penny Black "The painter and the bee" stamp, Whimsy Stamps Lavish Flourishes
Papers: blue paper from "Cottage Garden" 6x6 set by whimsy stamps, gingham from my scraps, Neenah (white), Stampin up (gray)
Tools: picket fence die, vines die set (both Whimsy Stamps), Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, baby oil and paper stumps for blending the colors
The sentiment was printed on the computer.

The prize this month is this cute rubber stamp from Whimsy's Elisabeth Bell Cottage Cuties, from my own collection, so it has been used.

I would also love to combine this with a few other challenges:
Cards by Lady Anne / Stamp Challenge - anything goes (ends Mar 31)
