Think Spring

Hello blog friends,

We are celebrating Spring at Double D Challenges and I hope you can join us this week with your flower creations. With such a lovely ca-dd-spr1-tileinspiration photo you can just let the creative juices flow. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog and start creating – we would love to see your card this fortnight.

I was inspired by the wood-grain chair, the flowers, green, pink and yellow colors and the birds. I used a Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder “Bark” for the background.This was distressed with white acrylic paint for a shabby look. After layering an oval wreath on the background I added lots of flowers and bows. The final touches are a stamped die cut bird, pink hearts and a sentiment. I also made an envelobox  and embellished it to match my card. All the supplies are listed below. Hope you like my take on the inspiration picture.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    Oh, my! Where to begin? It’s just incredibly gorgeous all over. And a box! I especially love the scribbly oval die and the distressed bark, which looks like it’s just been peeled from a tree. Truly, the bird, though… you dressed up that plain little bird so prettily with the sparkly flourish, the string tie, and the heart. I’m simply in awe.

    Oh my… this is gorgeous! Thank you for the close-ups! There are so many elements about your card and box that have my jaw hanging, so I’ll just say your assemblage of every single element is masterful, from the layout to your embellishments. Thank you for the inspiration and sharing at SOS this week 😊
