Spring Basket

With all the snow and cold weather here in the Northeast, I thought a few colorful tulips might brighten my day.  I don't usually want winter to end too fast but this year I AM READY for spring! 

Crumb Cake card stock was used as the base for my card.  I used the Scallop Trim Border punch along one side of a piece of Very Vanilla, added some Rose Red brads in the bottom right corner and adhered it to the card front.  Using the same punch, I punched along one edge of a strip of Rose Red card stock, added a strip of Springtime Vintage designer series paper, and attached them to the left side of the Very Vanilla layer.  I stamped the image from A Flower For All Seasons stamp set on Very Vanilla card stock with black ink.  The image was colored in with Rose Red, Always Artichoke, Pink Pirouette, River Rock and Crumb Cake markers.  I outlined the bird with a Basic Black marker so he would stand out in front of the basket.  The image was punched out and added to a Rose Red scallop circle.  This was all popped up with dimensionals.  Again, a very clean and simple card with a touch of spring.  Have a wonderful day and stay warm.
