Embrace Spring!

Wow!  Did morning come early today.  I am so not a night owl.  I stayed up way too late last night.  I've got myself a new coffee pot so I should be raring to go in a bit.

  A while back I got a mat pack of this really pretty, soft paper by DCWV called Linen Closet.  That title just conjures up such sweet smells to me.  Imagine sticking your nose into a big,, fluffy, white towel that was first hung on the line (then you stick it in the dryer for a fluff cycle so it is fluffy). AHHH!  This winter loving girl is really ready for spring.  So here is my "spring" card.  Hey ABC Toys...I'm entering again...LOL.

I also used those stickers from the dollar store on the top corners, my "Halloween" pearls and a hodgepodge of lace trim.  My flower was created with ribbon and I do have a tutorial on it.  I'll be back later with that.

UPDATE:  Tutorial is located HERE.

  I finally got to use some of my new Verve stamps.  I love this flourishy frame.  The inside sentiment is from a Unity's Bevy of Butterflies.  Do you see my butterfly?  I made that by stamping and layering a heart and flourish from the Verve set.  I love it when a set is multifunctional.  This set is Thankful Accents and it's so pretty!

 I have a few more challenges to enter with this card:

You are so funny, I love the personal shout out up in your text ;o) This is BEAUTIIIIIFUL, I am going to have to check out that stamp set. Does it pair with a Nestability or did you cut around the stamp ever so perfectly?
