Wishing for Spring


Did you enjoy the Layers of Color Cake Decorating Party? Weren't all of those cakes and cupcakes awesome?!!

Today I am sharing another card I made for the Stamp TV release party Challenges. The challenge was called "String it up" which translates into using twine, fiber, or string but no ribbon.
I am soooo ready for spring so thought I would create a card with a spring like feel to it for this challenge.
The my focal image uses stamps from Gina K's The Giving Tree stamp set. I used memento inks to stamp the tree, flowers and birds nest. The birdhouse and grass were colored with copics, E25, E33, E34, E35, E37/YG01, YG21, YG23, YG25, W00.
The sentiment is also from The Giving Tree stamp set and is cut out using circle nestabilities and tucked behind the picket fence border.
I chose to use twine for my card and wrapped it around behind the buttons and also threaded it through the buttons.
The pink paper in the background was embossed using Sizzix Wood Grain embossing folder. I sponged a bit of Memento's Angel Pink ink over the embossing to make it stand out a bit more.

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for visiting with me today! I appreciate it!!
