So, you know what that means, don't you?.....a Spring-themed card is in order and that's the challenge for this week's Bloggers' Challenge: Think Spring! This card....and yes, it's pink again! (For a non-pink gal, I seem to be on a pink streak!!).......is so simple and soft and was oh, so easy!
For the center panel, the flower was stamped onto Vellum paper.....it takes a few minutes for the ink to dry, so if you decide to duplicate this card, be sure to set it aside. The cut out flower and leaves were created with my Big Shot, of course, and the Birds and Blooms Sizzlet. The edges were all sponged to give each layer a bit more definition, and the Clear Crystal Brad was added to the center. To assemble, the stamped vellum was layered ink-side-down against a layer of Whisper White....I just used a Mini Glue Dot in each of the upper corners to secure the Vellum, and if you hide them in an image, they barely show! In this case, the card base is Pretty in Pink instead of my normal neutral color.

CS: Pretty in Pink, Whisper White, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Vellum
