Spring has Sprung!

......well, almost! Today was a cold one, but there are definitely signs that Spring is trying to push its way in......the trees have buds, the crocuses have popped, the days are definitely getting warmer (even if they begin cold)! Spring time officially arrived this least on the calendar. So, last week's theme for our Challenge was very appropriately Spring Flowers!

My card for this Challenge is really not my original idea, but really a compilation of ideas that I've seen out there in cyberspace. This cute little Sale a Bration set, Sweet Summer, just arrived on my doorstep a few days ago.....I just couldn't resist it any longer!.....and I so wanted to use it while it is still current. And if you've been visiting my blog for any length of time, you'll know that one of my favorite color combinations is Crumb Cake and Baja Breeze. Although this is not bright like Spring cards can be, I hope it still qualifies....what do you think of this sample?

As you can see, I used Crumb Cake as my card base and impressed it with the Terrific Tulips Embossing Folder. That sweet little image was simply stamped on Whisper White CS in Basic Black ink and colored with markers. To dress it up a bit, the flowers were cut and popped up on Dimensionals....after being colored with a Blender Pen and a bit of ink off the lid; and some Basic Pearls (another of my favorite things!) were added in. Isn't this just so sweet?!!

Stamps: Sweet Summer, Tiny Tags
Inks: Basic Black, Baja Breeze
CS: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Baja Breeze
Misc: DS Paper Pack (retired) in Kraft, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Linen Thread, Baja Breeze Button (retired), Linen Thread, Basic Pearls, Blender Pen, Certainly Celery Marker, Baja Breeze Marker

Very pretty card. Love the soft feel and the polka dots go well with your floral image (which is cute by the way.)
