"Just living is not enough"

Hello Crafty Friends!

The spring weather is really picking up here in beautiful Nova Scotia.  I love seeing the spring bulbs blooming and hearing the sweet calls of the happy birds.  The longer days mean that my morning walks aren't entirely dark and the evening walks with my puppy are bright and rejuvenating.  Spring is such a great time of year because it fills my heart with joy and energizes my soul.  Welcome back Spring!

With spring in mind I made another card using the newly released stamp from Quietfire Design, Just living is not enough:
Just Living is not Enough - Mounted
It was heat embossed in black on polka dotted Heidi Swapp paper and die cut using Spellbinders' Ovals.   Next more HS paper was die cut using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals and Distress Ink (Mustard Seed) applied.  Couture's doily die was used to cut vellum paper and cheesecloth (dyed with Distress Ink in Mowed Lawn) was assembled under. 
More HS paper was cut to size and distressed along the edges.  Black card stock created the tent fold card and Distress Paint in Picket Fence was applied.
I do hope you enjoyed the card and I hope you are enjoying your spring!
Big Crafty Hugs,
Kathy Jo
