Spring is in the Air
Hello! Hope your weekend is shaping up to be fabulous! Mine will be busy, as usual, but that's pretty normal around here. Before I head out for the day, I want to share a card with you. I have spring on the brain. I am ready for the warm and sunshine to be here. My daffodils are blooming and I want everything to be green again. So, in honor of that wonderful time of year, here is my card for today!
I used SU's Season of Friendship for my tree and leaves but printed my own sentiment rather than use the one included with the set. For flowers, I stitched on coral colored buttons with brown MM Stitches. Sometimes a simple sketch like this is just what I want to make and I love how it looks when I am done. I think the techniques for this card are pretty easy to figure out but if you have any questions, drop me a line. Thanks for stopping by!
