Spring is in the air?

Well listening to the blustery wind outside my window this morning I don't think spring is here quite yet.  The last couple of days have been a nice tease though.
I was working on new designs this morning and I had been just itching to use my "Build A Blossom" stamps and Punch.  I'll admit it....I'm addicted!

Here's the card I created.....


I used my handy dandy Big Shot and the Tulip Embossing Folder on the Whisper White card base.  I wanted it to be simple and clean.  Then I stamped the petals, leaves and the flower center using the "color on color" technique.  After punching out the pieces, I adhered them with glue dots after "bending" them a little with a bone folder to give them a 3D effect.
I used the "True Friend" stamp from one of my favorite Sale A Bration stamp sets, "Punch Bunch".  Then I finished it off with the "Ice Cream Parlor" ribbon and buttons that I got FREE from Sale A Bration.  YAY!  The Ice Cream Parlor Designer Paper is adorable and I'm almost out of it!  I need to add it to my Wish List.

I had so much fun designing this card and it definitely made me feel like those warm spring days are just around the corner. 

Wherever you are and whatever you do today....make it a great day!

Blessings,
Michelle
