Today I have a very simple but pretty card in beautiful spring colors.  I am following the sketch at Sunday Sketch & Stamp.

The pretty color scheme is from Stamptacular Sunday.

The sentiment stamp is a clear stamp which I layered on a Lacy Oval diecut with pop dots.  The left panel is bordered with a MS punch and some small lace trim and is then also added with pop dots.

The charm is added with a seam binding bow which I colored with some shimmery  Creative Inspirations Paint to match my paper. 

The flowers are an attempt to try something new and I was quite happy with how they turned out.  I used Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch die and cut the bottom layer from a cereal box and painted it with white acrylic paint.  After it dried, I coated it with glue and Diamond Dust glitter.  The next layer was cut from DP and all 3 smaller flowers were cut from felt.  They were finished with a button.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
