'Tis Spring



I hope you are having a relaxing weekend. For my post today, I created a card with a Colors of Spring theme for a new to me challenge over at The Stamp Man. I began by selecting this clip art image from Love Letters 1 and this butterfly image from a Miniature Book, both from Crafty Individuals. I mounted them to a soft pink doily, which was mounted to a mauve card base. I stamped the eggs and sentiment from the Birds of a Feather plate by Artistic Outpost with Black StazOn ink onto scrap card stock and watercolored the eggs with Broken China and Spun Sugar Distress Inks and mounted them to my card front. Simple embellishments include cream colored lace, winter white seam binding, a vintage-style rabbit die-cut image, a feather and pearls. I decided not to include a bird, as the feather and eggs suggest its presence, already! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Best wishes, Yvonne



P.S. Just reminder, about my Third Anniversary Giveaway. There is still time to leave a comment, through February 29, and be eligible for the random drawing!

This is one of the most beautiful feminine cards I have seen in quite a while. It has everything but doesn't look too crowded.
