Springtime Garden


I am so ready for SPRING and this set sure puts me in the mood. Today we are supposed to have temps near 65 (but how many times has the weatherman been wrong). For my card today I used Springtime Garden which has several images to make you think spring. I also used FREE downloadable digi background paper designed by an angel friend Christine and it worked perfect for my card. I colored the image with copics, put a fluffy white tail on my bunny with white flocking and used the free digi paper to put on my sign - how perfect is this. I stamped my image on the digi bg then cut out, distressed it a bit and glued it on the signboard. Then I used the darling little chickie again colored with copics and cut out, popped up with a bit of foam tape, and the greeting Happy Easter along the bottom. I used More Mimi DP as it went so well with my coloring and a new nestie labels 11 to cut out the focal image and DP. Go check out the free digi papers and see what you can create.

Awww...lovin' the fluffy tail! Great card, dear friend-hopefully the weatherman is right! Even 50 would feel good! Have a good day today - hope you find some time in your girl cave to play! I'm buried in monthly reports (ugh)!
