Happy spring to you all!
I do hope you all had a great weekend! The weather here was wonderful. I spent time in a garden clearing out some remnants of last year's memories. It was nice to get my fingers in the soil again and clear the way for this year's show. Sometimes I garden with my iPod and sometimes I just let nature play its melody. On Sunday nature played a sweet spring symphony and I realized one of the many things I love about spring: the birds singing. They inspired me to make this card in spring celebration.
The card was made with an ivory base using the large Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle die. The front is a gate fold also made of the ivory Timeless Rectangle. Pink vellum was dry embossed and placed on the front and inside of the card. Spellbinders Labels Twenty, Memory Box's Quinn Flourish, JustRite's stamp sets Fleur De Lis and Musical Notes were used as shown. A magnet set was hid under the front label and under the inside label to close the card.
I usually do not use pink or ivory in cards so this was an interesting change for me. For example, the ivory paper I have had since last summer and the pink paper from last spring! In the end, I have realized that pastels should enter my card designs more often...and I should start using more of my paper I have stored in iris boxes waiting to be used. :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
