I'm happy to report the latest storm is going to be east of us - yippee! A quick look at the garden and I see some crocus sprouts peeking through the soil. I'm so ready for spring to begin!
This card has been kickin' around on my project table for a while now. Obviously, some other shiny object distracted me ... LOL.
The background papers are Sahara Sand and Parisian Breeze joined together with a piece of Victoria lace. I used the color spritzer tool with a Sahara Sand marker to add a bit of color to the top portion. I was surprised to see the spritzer tool on SU's retirement list last year.
A piece of Very Vanilla paper was cut from a Spellbinders Large Standard Circles #5 die. The flowers were stamped in StazOn Timber Brown. Baja Breeze and Mellow Moss inks were applied with a blender pen. I love these floral images for watercoloring. The image was then adhered to a Baja Breeze Lacey Circle.
Inspire was stamped in Baja Breeze and embossed with clear embossing powder. The small petite oval was mounted onto a large petite oval from Parisian Breeze paper. A lace bow with antique brad finish it off.
I'm amazed it is almost April. I've been enjoying the longer days, seeing the bare patches appear on the lawn, watching the chipmunks and squirrels gather around the feeder. Soon the earthy spring smell will be upon us.
Thank you for coming by. Have a wonderful evening.
