Spring Background

Spring has officially arrived. The weather reached 60 degrees on Monday; I saw my first robins; and we're having spring showers.Today it's supposed to reach a high of 40 -- oops. Well, hopefully my card will at least bring a feeling of spring. I love to create my own backgrounds with large background stamps and my favorite medium to use for color is, of course, Creative Inspirations paints. I just love the finished shimmer that the paints create. The stamp I used is from Stamp Camp. I used various shades of pink and green for the flowers and foliage. The butterfly is a die cut I created using a Sizzix die and paper from a Tim Holtz paper stack. I dry embossed it using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I covered the butterfly with fairy dust for the shimmer. The green pearls add a little bling. The sentiment is from Artistic Outpost. Maybe I should have added a question mark. We have to believe that spring will come to stay soon. Barbara Washington
