Thinking of Spring

The winter here in the Northeast has been exceptionally mild. So being the eternal optimist, I can't help thinking that Spring is just around the corner. Hahaha. Who am I kidding? It's only January!

The color challenge at CR84FN this week fits right into my 'Spring' fantasy. The colors are lt. pink, yellow and neutral. The air is always so clean and fresh in the 'Spring' so I wanted my card to be clean and fresh. The sketch at Mojo Monday was perfect for designing a clean, fresh 'Spring' card.



The stamps are from Printworks, embossing folder is Cuttlebug, DP is from a Heidi Grace paper pad, ribbon, glitter dots and silk flower are from Michaels. Each floral image was stamped twice, colored with Copic markers and then one was fussy cut and mounted on top of the other with foam tape. The vase was paper pieced. Stickles were used to highlight the vase and the centers of the flowers.

Here is the inspirational photo...be sure to read the quote.



The sketch was turned on it's side to make my card.



Be sure to check out the next  post....more 'Spring' flowers!! (Flourishes Hyacinth's are up next), If wishing could make it happen.....It would already be 'Spring'!


Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
