We had quite an icy week here. In fact, my son had two days off school because of all the freezing rain. I still went to work but had a few cancelled appointments. Despite the mild temperatures, I'm ready for spring and obviously had spring on the mind when I created my card for the latest Your Next Stamp challenge (Sketch Challenge #56).

I did some masking on my card base to create the colourful strip behind the fence and I layered the fence so that some of the colour could be seen through the heart detailing.

I finished things off by popping the sweet little girl on the front of my card and stamping a simple "Hello".
