Arty Girlz Challenge and Mixed Media Monday

I've just finished this today. Been working on it for a couple of weeks. I tried to choose cheerful spring time colours. It's just beginning to feel like there might be some brighter, slightly warmer weather on the way.... hooray!! You don't really get a sense of the depth from the photo but the box frame is about 2.5 cm deep and the inner pic with the checkered border is sitting on a block of wood to bring it forward from the base. The Arty Girlz Challenge this week is Smile.
Edit: Mixed Media Monday is Spring Colours so have entered that too.
