Secret Garden and Kraft card



Happy Friday!

Crazy bit of weather here the past 48 hours.  Yesterday was glorious: warm weather, the sun was valiantly shining, birds chirping...spring was in the air.  Then I woke up this morning to winter tapping me on the shoulder and saying "Not yet, Chick.  I still have some stuff up my sleeves."  Snow.  It is not that it is not pretty snow but yesterday was sooooo nice.  I was hoping for another day! 

The spring day made me turn to the Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper again.  I just love this paper.  I cut out this image from one of their 12 x 12 sheets and used the Spellbinders Sun Flower Set Two (S4-158) to embellish.  All of the pretties were mounted on Kraft card stock.  Of course Stickles was used- all the daisy centers- and pearls added a happy, finishing touch or two.



Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

  5. Adorable !! Such a sweet card, I love how you matched the daisys. At least the snow was beautiful today, the shrubs looked like they were covered in cotton balls! I prefer snow to mud anyday!

      Yes, many positives of snow over mud. This week Ella always came back from the dog park covered in mud! But she had a lot of fun. :)

      Have a nice weekend!
