Ick - I'm not feeling that great at the moment. I wasn't feeling good for a while yesterday but I was hoping it was just a passing thing (or something I ate!) but now I'm feeling ill again. A flu bug is going around our area again and I am trying to avoid it - I'm supposed to go to the city tomorrow to celebrate a friend's birthday and I will be really upset if I'm too sick to go! *keeping fingers crossed*
Anywho tho here is another sample I made - this time using CC Designs soon-to-be-released Gingersnaps Spring Thing set - seriously just OOZING the cuteness factor:
I was just tickled with myself as this card came together - it turned out SO cute!! The duck, puddle, tulips and butterfly are all from the Spring Thing set, I drew in the sidewalk with a black marker (I took inspiration from Lauren on that one), and the sentiment is from my Friend Sentiments set (yes again - I've been using this set on every card I've made lately - so y'all just might get sick of it before it's even released! ACK!!).
Once I did that I stamped one of the tulip images from the set twice along the sidewalk and stamped the butterfly in the air.
The duck was stamped and colored separately then cut out and adhered to the main image with dimensionals.
I added Stardust Stickles to the butterfly, tulips and puddle.
The sentiment was stamped then punched out with a circle punch.
I was originally going to mat it with pink cardstock and a lighter pink scalloped CS but changed my mind and used yellows instead - I was thinking it sorta looked like the sun that way - a cheerful sun with a sentiment in the middle LOL! The scalloped circle was done with SU!'s scalloped circle punch.
I added some May Arts ribbon (this is one of my FAVORITE ribbons - I love the color and the texture - and EVERY time I go to re-order more it's sold out!) - I used my MM Ribbon Slot punch to punch a hole in the main image to thread the ribbon through before tying it in a bow.
All the colored cardstock is by DoodleBug. I used my Martha Stewart border punch to create the punched floral edge on the light blue CS.
I didn't want to toss the punched pink circles I had made so I stamped the "Forever Friends" sentiment onto white CS, and another butterfly from the Spring Thing set in pink then matted it with the pink circle and scalloped circle and that was it :o)
