Sweet Friend for JustRite Stampers
Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a wonderful day with family and friends. I have a little card to share today. This is for the JustRite Stampers' Friday challenge # 093 to make a card celebrating Spring and tell what Spring means to you. When I think of Spring I think of blue skies, fresh green leaves, and brightly colored flowers. You can check out the challenge details here. So, I picked a blue green color and a red. The colors felt a little vintage-y to me so I played that up a bit. I used the beautiful Resplendent Rectangles dies and also Labels Four and Wonderful Wings dies from Spellbinders. I did very little stamping on this card... just the sentiment and the label. The label was colored with Copics. I glittered up the butterfly with Crystal Snow from Stampendous and embossed one of my layers with the Petals-a-Plenty folder from Stampin' Up! I used ALOT of Chamomile ink from PTI to distress everything, added some twine, a button, and some pearls to finish it off. This is a little outside my "normal" for cards but I really wanted to play around with these gorgeous dies that I recently purchased. I really do think Resplendent Rectangles is my new favorite.....have I said that before? Lol....I believe I have! Anyways, hope you have a great rest of the day (or evening) and I'll be checking in soon!
