Springtime Thoughts

Oh my- hello ladies, I hope all is well with you. My card for today is made with hopes of Spring coming soon- all over, not just those of you in the South and West coasts. It is still so darned cold here in Michigan.

The card is actually a tent card- it still measures the standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 but the actual base is smaller and the image extends beyond the base. The image is a CC design from the Hunny Bunny set that I just got from Kelly over at KLStampinNScrapping, isn't he the cutest? I masked it with the High Hopes flower background as well. The base is SU barely banana and the DSP is from K&Co paper pack that I got at Micheal's after Christmas. The image is layered using one of the nesties, (thanks Cheryl!) . Happy Thoughts is from that very set from SU: the brad is DCWV spring set.

So- did you notice the flowers in the back? I used the flower soft on them to make them pop- this stuff is so fun and easy to use. I know you are thinking (if you've not used it) sure Heidi, just like glitter it will be all over. No, really it is not! Just add a little glue, sprinkle the flower soft, tap it down and then tap the rest off back into the jar and done! It doesn't get smooshed either! It is a must. Then of course, the stickles............. a staple in every crafters box.

Have a great weekend!
