Have A Wonderful Day

Another cloudy and dreary day here, am really looking forward to the first day of spring. Creating soft pastel cards is my way of bringing it along a little bit sooner. My youngest came home today telling me she learned that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb-LOL! She showed me pictures of how we dress during the first weeks of March (in parkas) and the last weeks we are wearing short sleeved shirts and lightweight jackets. I think I like the month of May better- the temperature is more reliable, mild and breezy, warm not too hot, and the trees are in full bloom.

Supplies: blush cardstock, olive printed paper, vellum, matching inks, prisma glitter (I LOVE this stuff, very fine and just soooo sparkle-y!), organdy ribbon, dew dots, and ticket punch for the corners. The 2 stamp sets used are: Life is So Good and Birthday Script by CTMH.

As far as techniques, I doubled stamped the flowers 1x with baby pink, then just to the right with blush. Makes it look like watercolors. Same with the olive leaves/stems. Inked up the stamp, stamped off 1x, then stamped my paper. The sentiment is in Smokey Plum ink.

Like the card says: Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!
