Cheer on Some Spring!

I'm HOPING that this spring-like card will spur on some happy thoughts and spring-like behaviour. (I don't think the weather is ready to co-operate yet)!
I tried some sponging on a MS stencil. I LIKE it! Fast and easy. Years and years and years ago, I used to stencil onto fabric, etc. I never thought I would be doing it again, but I like this easy new version. Bonus:your card is lighter in weight if you want it to be.
I painted the magnolias with inks and then fussy-cut them. There is glimmer mist on the flowers but the photo doesn't show it. I also spritzed the stencilled area with water but you can't tell that either! LOL!
I HOPE your heart is lighter after seeing the spring colours. I know it perked me up. Thanks for stopping by. ((((Hugs)))) to anyone who needs one.
