Phindy's Place Challenge #42 - Spring is on the way!

It's Friday and it's time for another fun challenge at Phindy's Place.  This week's challenge is a bit of wishful thinking on my part:  it is called Spring is on the way!  So many of us have had our fill of snow and ice and cold, but the days are beginning to get longer and my card is celebrating this.  I've used no less than three - count 'em - three Phindy's Place images and I have combined them in Photoshop, which was a very steep learning curve.  When I say "I", that means "We" as DH was far more patient than I am and was a great help with this card:).  Left to right, the images are Spring Dress Mei Mei, Spring Dress Emma and Spring Dress Kulla.  I wanted to ground my images using more than just Distress Inking, so I made an attempt at drawing in some paving at the edge of the grass they are dancing on.  
The sentiment is from a Joanna Sheen House Mouse set, the corner punch is Martha Stewart Pansies.  There are tiny tiny flower buttons scattered on the grass, bling in the corners and the DP is Basic Grey Sugar Rush.  I've moved the sentiment across a little on the CPs sketch..

My card is for the followng challenges:
CPS - sketch
Paper Sundaes - two or more images
Crafty Creations - 3 little words
Craft your Passion - anything goes
Pile it On - bright and breezy
Little Claire - anything goes
