ready for spring!

We have had the windiest winter this year and it's driving me nuts. Maybe the Wyoming wind is dropping down to Colorado... Spring, where are you?! So on that note I decided to do a card that will cheer me up - all spring colors here! The 4-1/4 square base is Sage Shadow and I rubbed the card along the edge of my white craft pad. The designer paper is Spring Fling (see the theme here?) and the stamp set is a hostess set, Sweet Dreams. I think I'll use this card for Easter. The flowers are inked in Bordering Blue, Pretty In Pink and So Saffron and the frame is So Saffron as well. The stems are Sage Shadow - not a color I use a bunch, so this was different for me today. I added the pink grosgrain ribbon to add something to the bottom corner, kind of as an afterthought. This card is my try at this week's sketch challenge over at SCS.

Yes, I realize today is Valentine's day and I should post something so cute and lovely and lovey-dovey, but I ran out of ideas. I knew that would happen. Tonight we're having family night as our Valentine's Day date, so I'm really looking forward to that. Have a happy Valentine's Day!
