Is it time for Spring?

I'm already starting to have a bit of a mourning period for the 2016-2018 colors.  This card uses two of them, Sweet Sugarplum and Peekaboo Peach.  I will miss them when they are gone, but I can't wait to see what's coming next.  These colors will be around until the end of May so you still have plenty of time to make them part of your collection if you haven't yet.  

For this card, I used the Sweet Sugarplum for the card base and the ink for the sentiment and the rose on the card interior.  It also shows up in the Petal Garden DSP I used on the front of the card.  I colored the rose on the card front with a Peekaboo Peach marker for the darker bits and a Blender Pen with the Peekaboo Peach Ink Pad for the lighter petals. I thought Stampin' Blends markers might add more depth and detail, but I really wanted to use Peekaboo Peach and that color is not available as Stampin' Blends right now. I also thought it needed some Wink of Stella to add just the right amount of sparkle.  I haven't yet figured out how to catch the shimmer in a photo to do it justice.  I think you have to see it in person to really appreciate it.

Is it time for spring?  It sure feels like it today but it didn't last week.  Maybe I'm just being inspired by my Valentine roses and the desire to play more with these colors before they retire,
