Spring has Sprung!
Wow, has it ever, at least here in California, so I decided to play with some of the new Watercolor Collection digi papers I got from We Are 3, available at Miss Daisy Stamps to make a Spring card. The sentiment is also available at Miss Daisy Stamps HERE, but comes as a bonus with this sweet little bunny. So why didn't I use him? Well, the March challenge in the Miss Daisy Stamps FB Group is asking for a sentiment only, so a sentiment it is. I changed the color of the Spring sentiment in my Printmaster Platinum program and cropped out the digital butterfly so I could add a punched one. All three butterflies are from Martha Stewart punches. I used a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two and Petite Ovals to cut the sentiment and strung a piece of DL.Art Pink Champagne crinkle ribbon from the Vintage Vineyard Bundle.
BTW, Miss Daisy is also offering a gorgeous FREE sentiment, for a limited time, to use if you'd like to join in the challenge. You can find the link by joining the Miss Daisy Stamps FB Group. I didn't use it here because I didn't want to cover up too much of the beautiful paper but I hope to do another soon.
The flowers are hand made using a tutorial from Lisa, at A Mermaid's Crafts, with the same Watercolor digital paper. Although I couldn't even begin to do such lovely work, I did have fun with the flowers and used Spellbinders Blossoms Three instead of the dies Lisa used. I snipped the petals towards the center before proceeding as she does and added centers from my stash and crinkle ribbon leaves from the DL.Art Spring Bundle #2.
I'm also entering this in the Outlawz Festive Fridays Spring is Coming challenge (sorry, I finished this late and was too tired to blog yesterday so they have new themes today), the DL.Art March Linky Challenge, the DL.Art 200th (WooHoo!) Thankful Thursday Flowers Challenge , Lil Patch of Crafty Friends #53 AG, (and more after breakfast).
