A Happy Hello

Hi everyone! I'm excited to share my Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog DT inspiration project for LTSCB #27 - Anything Goes! Come play with us - we know you love Anything Goes! Our sponsors this time are SweetStamps and Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet!

I created a pretty note card using several digital papers from the Painted Garden Paper Pack 1 by Panda Bear Designs with Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet. I love these papers! If this doesn't scream Spring, I don't know what does! ;) This was a super fun and super easy project that I paired with stamped greenery and a sentiment. I left the inside blank since it is a note card.

I printed four digi papers from the pack (all on antique linen cardstock), created the circle and lacey circle die cuts for the focal image along with the rectangular pieces. I stamped the image and sentiment, and matted all the elements on dark green cardstock, then started layering. I added some pretty green stitched ribbon and bow, along with some pink gemstones and a couple white flat-back pearls, and she was finished! I love how this turned out!

I'd love to enter this pretty spring card into the following challenges:

I am a big fan of DP-so I love all the DP that you used. You did a great job layering. I love the green of the image and ribbon. It sets everything off wonderfully.
