Welcome To The First Day Of Spring...

but with the thermometer reaching 23 degrees Celsius, 
it already feels like summer!  Today I am sharing a card using the sketch 247 from Stamping 411 and the colour challenge 193 from Create with Connie & Mary


I had a difficult time figuring out what to do for the focal image for this card.  Finally after trying several different elements, I decided to pretty much stick to the original sketch design...


Stamps:  Extreme Elements
Inks:  Lucky Limeade Classic Ink
Paper:  Lucky Limeade, Peach Parfait, Pool Party and 
Very Vanilla Card Stock and Everyday Enchantment DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot, Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Modern Label Punch, Large Oval Punch, 
Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Basic Pearls Jewels

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Stamping!
