Spring is Coming!

Spring really IS coming to Michigan! This week is rainy but warmer and my tulips are up at least 6" already! I'm just starting to see a bright green tint in the woods...gotta love it!

Several challenges are asking for "Spring" themed cards/projects, so I made another one!
This one involves a new technique...new to me anyway! It is called "Wax paper Resist Technique". I saw it on the SweetStamps Blog...its is their monthly technique challenge for April. I thought it might be difficult to do...but wasn't! I tried it on the wrong kind of paper the first time and the results were disappointing...very pale colors and designs, but this time I'm happy with the results. I always think of bright spring green, new grass, blue skies and sunny days for Springtime....so that's what I put on this card.
I used a Sizzix embossing folder, "Flourishes, Dots" and also a Cuttlebug folder, "D'vine Swirls" with the wax paper to get my background. The flower is from StampingScrapping.com; button from my stash, leaves are stamped using "Fade Out Leaf" from Stamps by Judith; "Spring" is a stamp from Imaginisce.
