WMSC82 Spring Wishes

WaltzingmouseStamps I hope everyone is having a great day.  I'm going through another round of dental treatments - went in yesterday and again this morning.  Makes me glad to be alive to be back home in the comfort of my "space" - my craft room of course!!  I can't believe it's February, and that it's Thursday already.   I didn't want to end the week without participating in the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge!   Here's the link for this week:  http://waltzingmousesketchchallenge.blogspot.com/2012/01/challenge-82january-28-2012.html

PrintI've had this card in my head since I saw the sketch on Saturday (I didn't know the blog party was going to be Spring and almost saved this one for that!)  I was glad to get this on paper and pieced together last night.  I hope you like it - I love all the green - it is a fresh of breath air after all the red and pink I've been working with lately!   I think this is just about as clean and simple a card as I'm able to make.   I stamped the background in Pic Nic Patterns, colored the flowers in Copic - fussy cut a second set to layer the flowers and really make them pop.  I almost sugar glittered all the flowers but decided on some simple orange gems for the centers that coordinate well with the gem on the bow.
I hope you like it - I appreciate your having a look.  Have a great day!

Wow, this is so pretty and really would have been perfect for the Blog Party,but I have no doubt you will come up with something equally as spectacular for that one too. Love that beautiful basket with all the fussy cut flowers, looks so bright and "Springy".
