Springtime





It is beautiful outside today even though it is still chilly out.  My tulips are definitely coming up so wanted to design a springtime card today.  I used three different stamps sets.  The bunny and basket are from Heartfelt Creations.  This stamp is "Bunny Bouquet" 778E,  The butterfly is from the "Nature's Note" set  and the sentiment is from "In Flight", both sets from Our Craft Lounge.  In case you can't read it the sentiment says "Just living is not enough said the Butterfly.  One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little Flower" by Hans Christian Anderson.

The lavender pendent was die cut with the new Spellbinders "Parisian Motifs" and the border along the top edge is from the "Parisian Accents" die cut set.  The sentiment was stamped on white card stock and cut out with the Spellbinders "Big Scallop Circles" die.  The Heartfelt bunny and basket were stamped, colored with Copic markers, and cut out with scissors.  The butterfly was white embossed on vellum and colored on the back and cut out.  Lavender Vellum flowers were created with the Martha Stewart "Hydrangea Punches".  All the elements were arranged on the card then four very small vellum flowers were made to put in the basket and one in front of it, to give the card more dimension.

I appreciate you stopping by and hope you are enjoying your weekend. 

All products used on this card can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
