Spring-It's Here!

Happy first day of Spring to all of you. In honor of the day I did a ten minute card for the occasion.


I used a stencil called Circles 1 from Stampinback and also the silhouette flowers from Stampinback. These are available at I Brake for Stamps. My stencil was sponged onto white card stock with pink and blue. Then I stamped the flowers in black.

My sentiment is from Biblical Impressions and that was also stamped in black ink. My base card is called Spring Green.

So I hope this makes you feel like it is spring in your neck of the woods too. Have a great weekend.

God bless,
Verna

Beautifully done, Verna! I love your soft background, especially the pink behind the floral silhouettes. It looks like the sun is rising in the horizon. Definitely a lovely reminder of spring!

Very pretty! I LOVE that stamp - it's so pretty and allows you to make a card in a hurry that looks like you fussed with multiple stamps! I may need to add that to my collection! Cool stencil for your background, too. And thanks for the happy spring wishes - we had snow today so it was nice to be reminded that spring is actually here!!

So lovely, Verna! Stenciling is big on trend at this time and your background is delicate and full of texture with both colors blended. Perfect scriptural reference and flowers beneath.
