Happy Sunday, All!
I am so enjoying seeing the happy spring cards that are popping up in the blogosphere. The spring challenges are starting to bloom. :)
The card I am sharing today should help continue those thoughts of spring and summer. The butterfly background is a new purchase from a Canadian company called Chapel Road Artstamps, a division of Class Act Inc. A local crafty store, Carsand Mosher, is starting to carry them and I am loving their stamps! To spread the word of this new company, I thought I would make a card to enter into several challenges.
The background was stamped and heat embossed using Versafine's Majestic Blue. The background was assembled to a card base made from Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles. Spellbinders Decorative labels Twenty Eight was assembled next. White card stock was embossed using Crafts-Too embossing folder Vintage Flowers. Stickles was applied to the raised areas as shown. I fussy cut a flower from the Chapel Road Butterfly Background stamp, applied stickles and adhered. Next was Colleen's Double Bow. On top of the bow is a hoarded flower. This flower came from a bag of flowers a friend gave to me in 2006! She gave the flowers to me before she moved and I very rarely use any of the flowers. (Miss you Andria!)
Hope the card made you think of spring!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great week.
