Hello friends! I hope that where you live, spring is giving you the tantalizing little sneak peeks it's been giving here! Last weekend we went over 70 and it was so nice! My granddaughter was here and we had fun doing girly things that actutally included doing some spring cleaning! I love that she actually wants to do some work! Oh don't get me wrong... she loves to play, but she loves to help too! So we enjoyed getting outside and cleaning some windows, porch railings and did some gardening. That of course was followed by girly movies and playing dolls! What fun!!!
Anyhoo... I wanted to play in a few challenges I love, and I made this card for this week's Shining the Light Challenge on the ODBD blog
, and I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch
. I wanted to play in Lisa's Bloggers Challenge
- Think Spring, and I also am entering this in Word Art Wednesday
, which always is Anything Goes with Scripture or an encouraging sentiment, and there's always a free word art for you too! I am also entering it in: The Squirrel & the Fox - Autumn or Spring,
Sentimental Sundays - must include a Sentiment - Anything Goes, Opus Gluei - Spring has Sprung,
Glitter n Sparkle - Easter/Spring Colours,
My springy card is all made with cream card stock, and the Scripture is from the newly released ODBD 5th Anniversary set, Scripture Collection 11
. (Don't you love this one?!) I stamped it with Memento Bamboo ink
, then I stamped the frame from the Fancy Labels set
, which is made to fit the Spellbinders Labels 17.
I stamped that with Pigment Ink and then heat embossed with pink embossing powder from Stampendous. I cut it out with the Spellbinders Label 17, then using a SB Petite Oval
, I cut out the middle and popped it up over my sentiment panel. My background is a Cuttlebug Embossing folder
which I inked on the negative side with THoltz Spun Sugar
before running it through. The lower background panel is a hand cut from surrounding a Spellbinders Fancy Lattice Die which I inked with Memento Bamboo before I cut it out. This gave just a hint of green at all the cut edges. I added some green lace and beaded flowers, and a May Arts bow and I was almost done... but not quite! I felt it needed something more so I stamped the dragonfly from the Faithful Friend
set, inked a tad with pink, and cut out. Here are the sets I used:
