A bit of Spring for my window sill.

I have had this little wood bookmark/plaque for a few weeks that I wanted to do something with to put on my kitchen window sill. 

Being it was raining this morning and we now have 40 mph winds, I thought I would do something springy to try and encourage Mother Nature to please, bring spring to MN.
I was able to do this as well to fit the following challenges....

Here's how I did it....
Wood bookmark/plaque purchased for $1 from craft store along with acrylic easel for $.99
Paper scraps from my stash
Spring/layers cut 1.25" from Cricut Office Help, p.60
Flower border/layers cut 1" from SpongeBob Squarepants, p. 44
Extra flowers made using CM punch
Stickles and doodles with my pen

This is beautiful. It makes me feel like spring. I need something like this too, because Mother Nature hasn't provided me with much good spring weather either. I love it. Thanks for joining us for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge! Hugs- Glora
