Ahh!! It's Spring

Spring is the air here in Las Vegas, the tree are in bloom and the weeds they are a growin'. It seems good to see all the beautiful colors and think about spring cleaning. It is suppose to be in the 80's next week, that might be a good time to address the weeds in my desert landscaping.

Don't want to do that so, here is a card that met a few challenges for this week. Spring is at Rosie Dees Challenge, and that brings to mind bright colored Easter eggs, that is the basis of this card. Added wavy strips with solid and plaid papers and then using versa ink added a little texture to the solid colors. Crazy 4 Challenges wanted to see some paper piercing, and that is what was done as a border of the wavy strips.

The flower was made with a Sizzix die cut flower. double layered in two shades of pink. The leaves are also a Sizzix die cut that is available at Stampin Up. Finished the card off with a little tag and blue 1/8" satin ribbon on the stem of the flower. To make your own flowers was the challenge at Crafty Creations, only made one flower, but am sure this still meets the criteria of the challenge. Added the butterfly just for fun. Hope this brightens up your day.

Thanks for coming by, please leave a comment, love hearing what everyone has to say.
