Spring Greens find A New Home

I have four New Home cards to make, three are for people who have moved and are well settle in, so perversely I've made one for my Cousin who has yet to decide on the date for his move lol. 

I've taken inspiration from all the spring themed challenges to make this card...otherwise he'd probably have got a card with a house on it lol.....well men are hard aren't they!! I wanted to make it fun too...all I need to do is remember it's ready when he ups sticks and moves lol. 

The photo is of a flower in my garden...I took it last year and have no idea what is it called. BTW, we are mid  spring here and it's like a lovely summer day. Other than that, everything else is old stash, aren't I being good. The greetings are in Sakura Tiara glitter pens.  The flower and dragonfly (pretending to be those little lace-wing things lol) are brads and I've had them for around 5yrs...the skeleton leaf a little longer. Hope I can find an old stash challenge lol.  The cute metal snails, cardstock and papers are a gift from someone who became fed up with card making.....what is wrong with some people lol.....but her loss is my gain. 

A view of it standing in it's easel form.

Hi Lin!
You always do so well with these easel cards and I agree with Debbie, Columbines are one of the prettiest flowers. The latin name is Aquilegia, perhaps you know them by that? My mum used to grow them, would dig them up in old abandoned farm yards and things. Your fortunate to have some in your back yard!

Oh, Lin, what a cheerful card! I love those metal snails - they´re super cute!! It´s also such a nice design idea to fold over the edges on the top and the bottom!
