A Little Bit of Spring

The English weather is a law unto itself! On Friday here in the South it was so cloudy we missed the eclipse. This morning when I finished this card we had bright warm sunshine. Now at 4pm we have black skies with the threat of rain! I hope the weather is good wherever you are and this spring themed card will cheer you up if its not!

To create this card I used the latest set of stamps free with Creative Stamping Magazine. First I stamped the wreath and coloured it with Aquamarkers and coloured pencils. Before cutting out the shape I stamped the sentiment in the middle. I then stamped other elements and decoupaged them onto the wreath. The card base was created by appling Peeled Paint and Bundled Sage Distress inks through a mask.

I love to read your comments on my work and will always try to visit your pages too!

I would like to enter the following challenges:
