I'm truly feeling a need for spring. Granted, we've had glimpses of what that wonderful state will be like here and there, but after a weekend of dreary rain (sorry to those who had snow - but I think I'd prefer snow to rain!!) and more predicted for the rest of the week, I could stand a little sunshine. Honestly, I don't think I've been this pale in YEARS!!! I really do miss that wonderful California sunshine.
So...I decided to bring spring to my stamp room this morning. I saw this amazing card by Anna741 on (where else?) splitcoast a while back. I loved the use of this patterned paper with the Both Way Blossoms set, and had to CASE it! I changed the colors since I have LOTS of plum over here - I don't know why - and switched to organdy ribbon, but for the most part, it's a shameless CASE!
I love the simplicity of this layout. It was so easy...I made 9 cards in about 45 minutes. That's just 5 minutes a card!! And that includes watercoloring all these blossoms with my aquapainter! I think tying the darn ribbons took longer than any other one thing!. Oh...and I did add some stickles to these beauties to give them just a hint of spring morning dew. Thank you Michelle!!!
