Happy spring!!

One of my downline came over last evening and we had a ball just playing around. I needed to make some more cards for those wonderful ladies who provide childcare during our MOPS meetings, and since it was the first day of spring, I felt the need for some bright, happy colors. After much goofing off, this is what emerged: I first stamped the card base with the Linen background, then ran it through the Big Shot with the "Stylized Flowers" cuttlebug embossing folder. I considered highlighting the design by rubbing some additional ink over it, but ended up keeping it simple. I stamped the flower from Easy Elegance once, then again without reinking, layered with a simple mat, then added the sentiment. Simple, but very pretty!
