Spring Blessings

Hi everyone! Happy Spring to you all! Isn't this just a beautiful time of year, with nice cool mornings and warm (but not too hot) afternoons, and flowers blooming everywhere?! It's time for another fun challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #28 - Anything Goes! Come play with us - we know you love some Anything Goes! ;)

We're being sponsored by Sami Stamps

I chose the absolutely gorgeous Poinsettia Umbrella digi from Sami Stamps to create this Spring card. I fell in love with this image the minute I saw it - the possibilities are endless. I settled on a pretty red and yellow color combo which I think is very striking for a Spring project, and the papers in this My Mind's Eye paper pack were perfect!

I used some of my favorite stitched dies - the round ones this time - along with a scalloped circle die, lots of gold foil cardstock for a touch of elegance, and of course my signature big bow. ;)

I decorated the inside with a scrap of the floral paper from the front layered on some gold foil cardstock, and stamped a simple sentiment.

Proud to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, DCWV Gold Foiled cardstock, My Mind's Eye Happy Day 6x6 paper pad, red cardstock scrap
  • Stamps: Sami Stamps Poinsettia Umbrella digital image, GKD Spring Blessings stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Spectrum Noir- CR8, CR10, CR11, DG2, DG3, CT1, CT4, GB5
  • Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Circle Layers dies, Spellbinders Classic Scallops die
  • Accessories: Prairie Bird Boutique red wrinkled ribbon, MISTI, Doodlebug Design Boutique Buttons, white fun foam, Stampin' Up! Basic Pearls
