Spring Flowers of Hope



Well I'm coming in just "under the wire" this week since it's still technically Friday here being as it's only 8:39 pm! Had some difficulties today trying to find time to stamp and coming up with an idea I liked.

This isn't the most fancy card in the world but I do like the nice fresh spring colors.

For this card I used: Pixie Pink Card stock with a layer of Lavender textured (Bazzill) and Green Galore, Whisper White.

Stamps Used: Garden Whimsy, Dots and Daises BG (both SU) and Spring Sentiment by Hero Arts

Inks/Markers Used: Green Galore, Pixie Pink, Wisteria Chalk (ColorBox) and Basic Black

Other: Oval Scallop Punches (Marvy) Green Galore Brads, Iridescent Ice EP (on bug), paper piercing tool, Ribbon SU (retired) not sure of the name of the ribbon at this time. Foam Mounting Tape.

Isn't it fun to see fresh, light colors after all the darker colors of Winter? Love your card...so Spring-like! Can't wait for Old Man Winter to finally go away.
