Follow Up Friday...A Sign of Spring!

Hi, Vicki sharing with you today.  I saw my first sign of spring last week...robins!  Not just one, but a small flock of about 6 or so.  Very exciting considering that in February we had record breaking snowfall here in the Poconos.  There are 13 more days until Spring officially arrives and  I can't wait for the daffodils, tulips and peonies to bloom!

The bright colors of Spring make this card a breath of fresh air.


The cardstock base is 5" x 7" in size.  I cut the patterned paper to fit and used a border punch down the right side.  Before adhering the patterned paper, I cut a strip of solid contrast paper, 1 1/4" x 7" and placed it along the right edge of the cardstock.  

 I die cut and made all of the flowers in two different colors and inked them for more contrast.  The sentiment is written on a chalkboard heart tag using a white pencil.  The tag is outlined with white gel pen and the bow is tied with burlap string.  I added a circle base under the flowers and placed it on foam tape for dimension. The scalloped edge is embellished with pearls.
