I was inspired to make this card when I saw what Chris Franco did as a Guest Designer for the TAC Savvy Projects Blog. Check it out here - You will need to click on the category of Delicate Florals to see her design.

This is both a card and a gift! Attached is a bookmark that can easily be removed by the recipient! I used the Scor Bug to make additional perforations so it would be easy to tear apart. The stamp set I used is called Springtime Garden - which just happens to be on sale this month for $14.96. The regular price is $19.95. I colored with my Prismacolor Pencils and used OMS (Odorless Mineral Spirits) to blend. The paper used was Maggie - both the cardstock and the patterned paper.

Can you tell I am anxious for spring to come? I want all of this snow to MELT away, and my flowers to start coming up!

Hoppy Everything

It is so bright and sunny today! This card just got me thinking of spring!

I used the Scorbug and the ScorPal to make the sections on the white cardtock. From there, just stamped, colored and assembled! Colored with COPICs and finished up with Scrappers Floss in my buttons - is there any other way!?!?!? The stamp set used was Hoppy Everything. This stamp set just makes me smile! Used a light dusting of Brown Ink to highlight where I scored. It gave it a bit more definition.
