Spring Makes The World A Happy Place

April showers bring May flowers.  At least we have something to look forward to during all this rain.  This card certainly brightened up my day!  The image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.  The DP reminded me of a quilt pattern so I did some faux stitching.  It's a good thing I quilt better with fabric than with paper, you could catch your toenail in this stitching, LOL!

I added one of my Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch die flowers made from a cereal box, felt, some glitter and a flower brad.  There is a butterfly stickpin and a seam binding bow.

I wanted to add some pearls along the border of the image.  They aren't flatbacked and I was afraid that I would make a big mess with the glue so I glued them to a 1/8" piece of ribbon and that worked perfectly!
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!
