DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 51 : Spring or Autumn

Hi everyone, another fortnight has passed and this week over at the Squirrel and the Fox, we are asking you to create a project with the theme
Spring or Autumn
Here in Australia we are going into Spring.....can't wait, I am happy to kiss the winter goodbye.....this beautiful tulip image is from our sponsor Delicious Doodles
We are not quiet cold enough in Sydney, so to successfully grow tulips, we have to put the bulbs into the crisper in the fridge to make the bulbs think it's winter, then take the bulbs out and acclimatise them to the temperature change, then plant them...too much effort if you ask me, so I just buy them already in the pot and ready to go, no use putting them into the ground, not with our dig happy dogs....little archaeologists they are, dig their bone in and out 6 times in a day....obviously the two rascals don't trust each other when it comes to bones, lol...

The background paper is from my stash, the pink around the image is actual self adhesive canvas, and I just inked it. I had a little bit left over from a mini album I had made....I always use pro markers for my colouring, hope you like.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges;

Sister Act #21: Anything goes
