Wonderful Life - CCMC298

It's been a busy week around here, and I haven't had as much time to craft as I'd like :(
I finally got a chance to make a card for the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. I'll admit, the colors felt more like fall than spring to me, but I like what I came up with in the end! It was feeling like spring (and even summer!) here in Montreal for a few days, and now it's gone and snowed a bit last night :( hopefully it's gone soon, I'm ready for flowers and butterflies!!
I made the background by randomly stamping the leaves and flowers from the Secret Garden set. I stamped the green leaves on scrap paper before stamping onto my background so it wouldn't overwhelm the yellow and orange.
