Spring is in the Air!
Spring is definitely in the air here, we've had two days of sunshine even if it is still a bit cold. To celebrate the end of winter (am I tempting fate here?) I've created this card using a sentiment and image from the Live Out Loud set of stamps by Elusive Images.
The image has been stamped and embossed with black sparkle embossing powder. I've coloured it with distress inks (tattered rose, broken china, peeled paint and tea dye), I've then added perfect pearls - gold on the birds and white on the sun.
The paper is from Basic Grey and I've used a borderline mask from Tim Holtz to stencil the border along the bottom of the card.
The flowers are from a blog candy that I recently won (thank you Tracy) and the leaves have been made with a Leone Em punch.
This card is for the following challenges:
