Joy Fold New Beginning

I'm always delighted to see signs of Spring, although I guess it will be a while before we see any at anytime soon, after this hard winter we've had so far. I always love to see the snowdrops peeping through just outside my kitchen window.
Here I have used a snowdrop image, I'm not sure of the make, it's an unmounted grey rubber one which I bought on eBay quite some time ago and is a nice size, about 6.5 cms tall. I coloured it with distress inks and added a few highlights with a Gelly Roll Pen.
I like these cards to stay closed when required and so added a photo anchor; I don't like to see the back of brads, so I added  the green strip of card by way of both accent and camouflage.
The Spring sentiment is a Debbi Moore stamp.
