Hints and Tips
You can use seasonal punches for other occasions, on this card I have used a pine branch punch which I would normally use on a Christmas or winter card but it works just as well on a spring card.  Just cut the foliage out of coloured card that matches the season.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot Challenge: March Challenge Spring is in the Air.
