Any one ready for spring?

We in AZ have not suffered with the winter weather like some parts of the US - and the rest of the world, too.  However, the forecasters are predicting rain for the  Phoenix Open and many of the Super Bowl festivities - probably a nightmare for organizers and fans. 
The Polkadoodles challenge is to case a card - I am not sure if this is close enough - I used the card by DT member Alex at Sketch Saturday for a great deal of inspiration (especially colors), though my papers and stamps were not the same.  I used the Sunburst stencil from Stamper's Anonymous for the sentiment bg, and then dry embossed the entire bg layer.  The double sided DP is by Craft n' Craftin, and the bottom strip is Washi tape.  All but the card base and bg layer were cut from scraps.  I used chalk for the stencil, and ink for the sponging on the Especially for You.  I added a few Cheery Lynn branches to back up the flowers.  THe vine at the left is shiny cs, and I added bling to the flowers.
