Celebrating the Coming of Spring …


I have been so blessed with wonderful people in my life. Each person holds more than a special place in my heart. This card is dedicated to one such lady. We have known each other for 50 years and have shared many highs and lows. And above all, we are still good friends.

Making this card was more fun than I can express. When I first saw Stampin’ Up’s Beautiful You (143637), I knew instantly what I wanted to do…shades of a refreshing green with a light and early spring time feeling. I stamped the image on Gina K’s beautiful White cardstock. For her hat and dress I used only one color, fused and blended with Chameleon Pen’s Spring Meadow (YG3). For her flesh, I selected Nude (NUOO). The ground is full strength Green Apple (GR1).

The base card is Neeham’s StarDream – Fairway. I then used the Poppy Stamp's Leaf Frame die to surround the lovely dancing lady.

Just assemble the card per your usual way.  And Walla! You have a happy any occasion card!

Thank you for dropping in to my corner today. 



Till next time,


Barb

  1. Been tempted by that stamp set; seen many cards on a FB site I follow, Stamp Junkies. Your card is beautiful and that frame die makes the card so elegant.

  2. It is a great stamp collection Linda and the sentiments are wonderful. I'm so pleased that I will be able to use it.
    I really like that frame too. There are so many new frames - I have to not look for awhile.
