Think Spring!


Happy Spring!
We have had some lovely warm weather the past couple weeks, but I'm afraid it is "back to reality" today! Cold, gray, rainy...with a possible snow or ice storm tonight! Ahhh, Michigan! Gotta love it!
So my card looks like Spring has arrived anyway! I love to use spring green and lavender together...always makes me think of lilacs! They are definitely a Spring flower!
I made this card for a friend who has a wonderful online craft store: StampingScrapping.com and the leaf stamps* I used are soon to be included in a big Sale she's having. Oh, and the "Color Me" flowers too! The bow was made using my Craft-dee Bows bowmaker.
 Here is the list of what I used in creating this card:

Stamps: *Inkadinkado "Fossil Leaves" (fussy-cut)
Dies: Spellbinders "Valiant Honor", "Fleur de Lis Squares"
Inks: TH Distress "Peeled Paint", Stampabilities "Lime Green"
Flowers: StampingScrapping "Color Me- White"
Cardstock, ribbon & glass beads are from my stash

Challenges I'm entering this card in:
