Happy Birthday, Anita!

Today is Anita's birthday! (Well, it's already the 18th in Europe. I am sending this early so she can see it when she first checks her reader...) You probably all know her for her creative and outstanding (mostly) CAS cards and her sweet and encouraging comments! When I made her birthday card I decided to get inspired by the current Time Out Challenge #24 where we are to CASE Kylie's gorgeous card:






Anita is on their design team and the black on my card is a nod to her first card for this challenge.
I colored the stamp with markers, spritzed it and stamped. Also added some WoS to the flowers.
Have to say it was so much fun to play with flowers and spring colors while outside my window is still deepest winter...
