A Clean and Simple Spring!

Yes- I think we are ALL ready for warm weather right about now... and the Clean and Simple challenge on Split Coast last week was Wishing for Spring!

I used several colors of Memento Tear Drop ink pads to ink up my flower stamp (all four potted flowers are on one stamp!). Then I used a brown copic to make little lines on the pots to give a little depth and a yellow and pink copic to darken the center on two of the flowers. I also used the circle from a punch for their centers.

I drew a line around the edge of my card with a Micron pen just to define the space. It's amazing how that little line adds so much don't you think?

My stamps are from the Floral Silhouette set #467 by Rubbernecker Stamps

Although my card says 'Spring'! outside my house still says "WINTER" but the snow is melting a little bit each day!

I'm so happy to see you here today!

Tomorrow I'll be having a sneak peek of a new Waltzingmouse stamp set coming out on March 1st so be sure to come by to check it out!!

Such a happy card! Love the way you added the little details to the pots and flowers. Those details and the black line border are what takes the card to a higher level. Love it!

I DO love this spring card! The colors are so fresh! Yes, I agree - it's remarkable how just a little line makes the card look uber-professional! Nice work (as always)!
