Springtime Card

Day #3 of May Arts / Graphic 45 Blog Week!

Springtime Card


Do you have springtime on your mind?  Even in Southern California, the promise of spring flowers and warmer days is something I look forward to.  The card I made is bursting with spring colors and themes thanks to the lovely papers from Graphic 45's "Once Upon a Springtime" and ribbons and trims from May Arts.

For my large flower I used May Arts KK09 and the smaller flowers are EA09.  Click on this link  for a wonderful tutorial on these ribbon flowers by design team member Jen Shears.  I sprayed the flowers with colored mists to achieve their pretty colors.

I added a little leaf (May Arts XL09) for a fun detail and of course finished the card off with my very favorite trim, the May Arts burlap string SM09.
