Thinking Spring :)

Hi Bloggy Friends! :) I hope you're doing well and having a relaxing day!
All this cold weather here in Bama country is making me long for Spring. Even though my allergies are horrible then, I'm tired of being COLD!
Here's a card for all of you longing for a 70 degree breeze too:


I started with Kraft c/s. Then layered with a piece from a My Mind's Eye paper stack. Orchid Opulence backs the stamped panel. I hand drew the stems. Then used the heart and flower from Out of the Box stamp set. I stamped them in Perfect Plum and Pixie Pink inks. Then cut them out and added thread and buttons. I wrapped a piece of Olive sheer ribbon around the bottom. The punched sentiment is from fundamental phrases (lg. oval punch) and scalloped oval punch behind that. On the sentiment I made some punched holes (with a needle). I don't have the mat pack yet from SU! I think I need to invest in that. I love the look of the needle holes.
I hope you got a little warmer visiting me today :)
Until next time...
Blessings...

Your card is super cute & I agree...wants spring here! I'm tired of being in the single digits for temps. Love the kraft cs with purple. Will have to try the color combo out. Hugs!
