Wishing for Spring

Yes, we had snow and ice...AGAIN! I'm trying to look at the happy side of things, I get to stay in and craft, but I am really sick of all this winter weather! So for this card I used Flourishes Primrose stamp and thought of how much I adore spring and the budding of plants. I also entered this in Flourishes Anniversary Challenge " My favorite Flourishes Stamp" I colored and shaded the background paper of the stamp and really like how that turned out. The paper is from Close To My Heart "Magic Moments" and it's always been a great standby. I applied small pearls to the paper and colored all of them with my copics to give a pink hue. Finally foam tape (love that foam tape) was used to pop the images and a little more embellies and some ribbon really drew this card together. The sketch that I used was from Creative Inspirations blog challenge. Let me know what you think of my to get some blog love.
