Welcome Spring

Hi there! I guess a lot of  people are ready for spring right about now. Here in Central Texas you'd think it was summer already, with temps reaching into the 90's today. I am not ready for that yet! Anyway, here's a card I made using the Spring Holiday Cards cartridge. I like the bright spring colors on it.

I used the Gypsy to design the card so the layers could be sized to fit an A2 card base. The images on this cartridge all feature a sentiment, which I decided not to use on this card so I used the hide contour feature on the Gypsy to keep it from cutting. I also did the same with the faces on the flowers.  The pink layer was embossed with a Crafts Too embossing folder. The patterned paper is We R Memory Keepers, the Peep stack. On the flower I used MS glitter in Yellow Barite and Lime Green Stickles. The white strip was made with an EK success Wavy Dotted Scallop punch. The sentiment is  a stamp from Pink By Design and stamped with SU Melon Mambo ink. I used a piece of bakers twine in Pea Pod to finish it off.

Hope you enjoyed my little bit of spring. Thanks for stopping by!
