Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 108
SSSC108 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.
I'm SO ready for spring to stay. Seems like we have these incredibly warm days that just tease us since there is always a cold snowy day thrown in the mix to keep us in touch with winter. So in the spirit of all things colorful, I'm making a spring card for this week's challenge. I started with Friendship Blooms from Taylored Expressions and cut out the leafy branch with the Leafy Branch Die after stamping it in Olive Pastel Fluid Chalk Ink. The rest of the card is all made from Stella and Rose Hattie papers by My Mind's Eye - isn't it gorgeous!!? The buttons are from the Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather collection and I added a little linen thread to them before gluing them down on the branch. The sentiment was stamped twice and cut out to make the ribbon tag. I made the little button flower from the Friendship Blooms Dies.
