Spring Card


A really quick post this afternoon! Here is a "spring" card I am entering in 2 challenges:

1) http://theshabbytearoom.blogspot.com/ - Week # 55- Flower Palette"



I will put a few more details about the card-making in later!

Thanks for looking!

Okay, now that I have a little time I will add some info about my "Spring" card.

The paper is mostly from my stash; the light green and light blue are ProvoCraft; the white is Cryogen.

The HouseMouse stamp is called "Party Ribbons" (but I cut off all the ribbons!); the swirl stamp is (I think?) Inkadinkadoo, from Joann Fabrics; the flower stamps are from a random acrylic set I have; the alphabet letters for Spring are "Storybook Alphabet" by Stampendous.

The buttons, flowers and rhinestones are from my stash.


I did try something on this card that I've seen alot of lately but had not done myself: sponging the edges of the paper with ink for a soft border effect. It was incredibly easy! And I really like the look. So, as always, comments are read, enjoyed, and greatly appreciated!
