Waiting for Spring

Well its wet and gloomy here in France and no snow for us.

So my thoughts have turned to Spring.

I have created a lovely fresh card today and hope it brightens your day.

I used the very pretty Perennial Birthday stamp set to create the card.

I started with a square of white card stock and stamped in Pear Pizzazz and Soft Seam Foam some of the foliage from the set on the left of the card.

I then used the stitched shapes framelits dies and cut out a circle and added a stamped greeting.

Next I took some scrap card stock and stamped in black some of the flower images.  I then coloured them in using some ink and a aqua painter.  To colour the flowers using an ink pad just press an acrylic block onto the surface of the pad and then you have a little painting palette.

I then cut out the flowers and added them to the die cut circle.  Under the circle I added some pretty ribbon and another sentiment banner.

None of the cards I create are finished unless I add some sparkle so I added a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a lovely day.
