A Little Taste of Spring!

I don't know about you, but I am SO ready for spring! I have been a bit of a funk the last few days, and I think the weather has a lot to do with it. The bright sunshine this morning lifted my spirits considerably, as did working on this week's CAS challenge,which is to create a card with a spring theme.

This is a pretty straightforward card - no special techniques. I stamped the tree trunks onto the Whisper White card panel and then I stamped the trunks and foliage onto scrap paper and punched out the top of the tree. I used Dimensionals to add the tree tops to the card front. I cut a narrow strip of Certainly Celery textured cs and cut some fringe for the grass, adhering this piece to the bottom of the white panel. Next, I stamped my sentiment, added the piercing and butterflies. The taffeta ribbon adds that pretty, delicate touch I was looking for. Hope you enjoy today's creation - I'll be back tomorrow with some new goodies to share. Have a great day!

Hi Jen! Found your blog after seeing this card it's beautiful! I love it and I love Mount Horeb! I have been there many times!! Actually - when my husband and I were first dating before we were married we took our first little mini-vacation up there. We stayed in this hotel that really nice online and then turned out to be kind of creepy. Anyway - I am glad I found your blog!!
