It's Springtime

It was an absolutely gorgeous spring day today in Washington, with sunshine and purple crocus popping up in my yard.  Lovin' it. 

So my card today is one I made for iSpy Sketches  based on the sketch below.  If you have not had a change to check out their blog, please do so.  They have fun sketches to work with and the Design Team creations are very inspirational.

To make my card I used ink, paper and stamps from Close to My Heart that I had in my stash.  I began with an Orchid Bouquet A2 card.  Layered the Indian Corn Blue gingham paper on top.  For the center piece I used Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge, page 65 <Flower3> with the Oblong feature cut at 4", added the shadow in white cardstock.  I also cut a 3" <oval1> found of page 114 of George & Basic Shapes Cartridge.  The bird and birdhouse images were stamped in the same ink colors as the paper.  I also used Clover Meadow for the leaves. 

Finishing touches were adding the green grosgrain ribbon to the right side and a bow at the top.  The "thinking of you" message were stamp with black ink on a white strip of cardstock paper.  I clipped one end with a square punch to create a banner effect.  Small adhesive pearls around the oval really finish this card off.

Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy your week and check back for more sharing.
