Flowers are definitely a harbinger of spring so that's what I used on my card today - cutting them out of bright colors of card stock and layering them over a black and white dotted background to make them POP!
Roses in Bloom set and the spring sentiment is from Spring Baskets. I embossed the roses and leaves in black, cut them out and sponged the edges in coordinating colors of distress inks to deepen the colors a bit. I popped up two of the roses on foam tape and added rhinestones to the centers. My card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" so it will still fit in an A2 envelope even with the leaves sticking out over the edge of the card!
