Celebrating Thoughts of Spring

I'm glad to see so many challenge blogs asking for spring cards.  It just makes me feel happy to work with these fun colors. 

I have had this Sonburn Pink/Lavender Floral Row paper for a long time and I immediately thought of it when For Fun asked for these exact colors.  I cut out the diamond shapes to use for tags which Tuesday Throwdown and A Spoonful of Sugar both asked for.  This sweet image is a freebie from sliekje stamps.  You'll have to visit her; she has many more gorgeous images.

I have no idea what possesed me to sew seed beads along the edge.  It took For.Ev.Er!  My eyes just are not good enough for such tiny work anymore.

Lollipop Crafts and City Crafter both called for spring creations and Digital Tuesday said "Celebrate".  Believe me, I am celebrating the anticipation of spring, LOL!  Papertake Weekly said "anything goes/old".  (paper)

I want to give this card to a friend who is going out to dinner with us tonight.  She is such a sweet person and always enjoys a handmade card.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
