The birds are singing and the sun is shining. I think a spring card is in order, don't you? If you like cloches you won't want to miss my card giveaway the week of March 12th.
The oval was cut from Shimmery White paper using Spellbinders Large Classic Ovals which I mounted onto a Lacey Oval. The garden cloche and sentiment were both stamped in StazOn Black. The orchid was colored in Orchid Opulence and Pixie Pink with the leaves in Certainly Celery and Garden Green. I used a blender pen to soften the colors. The pot was colored in Crumb Cake. Sponging around the image was done in Pale Plum.
I thought the Fancy Pants Lavender Leaves designer paper went well with the Perfect Plum paper. Kaiser rhinestones in lilac and a corner bow finish the card. Although you can't see it in the photo I added Crystal Effects to a few spots on the cloche since the glass would naturally have some reflections.
A cute watering can was stamped on the inside and colored. I decided not to add a sentiment and leave this card blank for future use.
I will be joining everyone at Make It Monday for their weekly linky party.
