The Promised Spring

 Looking ahead to the promised spring and working on my Easter/Spring cards! 

I've had this lovely Magnolium Die from Aexandra Renke for over a year and felt it was time to finally get it out and use it. 
 I also added a bow from Fit to be Tied from the Greetery. I layered it over an oval die cut that I embossed with a Spring Leaves A2 Pierced Cover Plate from Honey Bee. (the piercing doesn't show up too well in the photo , you can see it mostly in the center).  
I layered the oval to a panel I embossed with the Weathered Embossing Folder from Taylored Expressions. 
 I die cut that panel with Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames from MFT. The sentiment is from an older Papertrey Ink set - Mega Mixed Messages.  
I went over the die cut stems with gray and pink watercolor pencils just a bit to add a little depth.

I'm linking my card to:

Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages - Papertrey Ink
Paper: White, Soft Stone, Lovely Lady - Papertrey Ink
Ink: Obsidian - Altenew
Accessories: Magnolium Die - Alexandra Renke, Fit to be Tied Dies - The Greetery, Pierced Feature Ovals - PTI, Spring Leaves A2 Pierced Cover Plate - Honey Bee Stamps, Weathered Embossing Folder - Taylored Expressions, foam dots.

Julia, this is modern and fresh, a beautiful Easter card. I love the textures and all that white space! We're so glad you could join us this week at The Paper Players.

Ah, sis, I love how feminine this is. You have such an eye for design when it comes to building the perfect layers using different companies and adding just a touch of color for added depth! This is the kind of card that sends us straight out to shop, lol! Thank you for inspiring (and enabling) everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
