Happy Spring!

This card has a nice Spring feel to it, which is quite apropos considering how beautiful it is in Atlanta right now, with the dogwoods and azaleas blooming. This is my favorite season, and Atlanta is a great place to experience it!

This card was made using five different stamps from Repeat Impressions. The three panel section was made by stamping the LOCKEbility image once on white paper and once on patterned paper. I stamped and colored the butterfly, bird, dragonfly and flowering vine images on the white paper and then cut the centers of each of the three sections out of the patterned paper and layered it on top of the white paper with the colored images. All the images were colored with Copic markers. The patterned papers are from Imaginisce. I mounted the main image with foam tape and popped the right and left sides so they were a bit higher than the center to make it look like a bay window.

The three squares of patterned paper were cut out with a square punch and then I used a circle punch to cut the circular images from the Spring Fling paper. I finished it off with some beautiful silk ribbon from Flourishes.

Hope you're having a great week! Thanks for stopping by!
