SC320 - Springtime Smiles

 Hello friends!  I don't know about you but I'm so ready for Spring, so when I saw the fun sketch Challenge on the Splitcoast Stampers (SC320) site yesterday I knew I wanted to create something using the new SU stamp set Easter Blossoms
My card base is Marina Mist with a panel of white and Bashful Blue designer paper with the corners punched using the Ticket Corner punch.  Then I added a vertical panel of the white and Marina mist that I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dot Impressions Folder.  After that I added the horizontal Bashful Blue cardstock with a piece of white Eyelet border along the bottom, I tied on my white taffeta ribbon and a piece of Marina Mist ribbon and added my two Tiny Tags using some string.  I stamped the sweet little girl image and sentiment in Marina Mist, added a mat and scallop punch some pearls and the card was complete.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you for the incredible response to my "Life is a Matter of Moments" card from my last post.  All of the wonderful comments that were left truly warm my heart and make my day brighter.  What was extremely exciting news was that my card was chosen in all three of the challenges that I entered it into, The Colour Queen, The Play Date Cafe and Pals Paper Arts as well as Nancy Riley's iPicks for the week.  I'm honored to have my card highlighted, thank you.

Lynn, you did a beautiful job with your Easter Blossoms card (especially since you now have a slacker demo...lol). Love the monochromatic look... you really pulled it off!

Congratulations again on winning all those challenges... it was totally deserved as it was a stunning card!

I'm trying to enjoy the springlike weather but then I see the calendar and realize it still is only February... ugh! I, too, am so ready for spring!
