April Showers Bring May Flowers

Hi, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a card featuring a little spring scene I made with dies.  I started with the Purrfect Day sentiment from Scribbles Designs, which I printed on white cardstock and then embossed with Darice Cloudy Sky.


I was inspired by Connie's card on facebook here, and I wanted to CASE it.  Here are the dies used: Poppystamps Brighton Border and Curious Cat, Memory Box Petite Umbrella, Lawn Fawn Grassy Border, and Impression Obsession Butterfly Set. I die cut Brighton Border in green, yellow, and pink so I could paper-piece the blooms.  I added pink gems to the butterflies.

  22. This card is so 'you'. Love the way you've done the double embossing - on the focal scene and also on the background piece. Lots of interest added to this enchanting little scene. Some lovely dies, used most expertly to make a delightful "Kitty" card! TFS & Hugs

  53. This is too cool. Love the embossed panels and the wonderful colors. So delighted you blessed us with your project last week at Word Art Wednesday. We have a new Challenge going on and I hope you join us again. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word in Psalm 18:6 which says, "In my distress I called upon the LORD, And cried to my God for help; He heard my voice out of His temple, And my cry for help before Him came into His ears." Have a blessed weekend.
