Spring greens..

Friday, February 11, 2011

I've seen a few signs of Spring in the garden, a few bulbs peeking through the soil and little green buds on shrubs and trees.... there's hope of Spring to come! I used The Color Room Palette #44 "Whitewashed" and the CRC44 sketch.

I love the pretty sketch and gorgeous palette. I uploaded my card to the Color Room last night but didn't get a chance to do a blog post! There's a new color palette and sketch today.

The papers are from the Mariposa Stack DCWV, I cut out the butterfly and made the little green flower using the Tattered Florals die. I finally got my hands on some small doilies, you'll be seeing them a lot on my cards... I'm a bit addicted!

The sentiment is from Sweethearts by Waltzingmouse Stamps stamped on a Spellbinders double ended tag. I added a little white seam binding and picot edged ribbon.

I pretty much edged everything in some white acrylic paint, I love how it makes everything pop more. I like how fresh this card looks. I'll be back tomorrow with my card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge! Enjoy the weekend! I've still loads of work to do!!
