Spring is only two days away...
I can hardly believe it, though they tell us it will be cold here until the end of March..
but that's okay, last year we had some crazy 80's days in March
and though we loved them, our flowers, shrubs and fruit trees didn't fare so well
they all budded out, then we had a "hard"freeze, damaging most of the buds...
I hardly had any blooming lilacs...the fruit crops were ruined..
so I'll take the weather as it should be for the next few weeks
(am I really saying that?)
So, onto my card.....
My "Spring" card is all black and white...
that is exactly what it looks like outside right now...all black and white...
This is a large card 5" x 5"...I made it on textured black SU card stock
making it a rather heavy card...
It is for two challenges
the first being over at Joan's Gardens
to make a black and white card
use an embossing folder
use pearls, lace and a flower
use a product sold at Joan's Gardens
this has lots of detail that probably the pic doesn't show....
the birdcage is embossed
the upper right corner is turned back, showing the inside of the card a bit
One of my newest purchases from Joan's Gardens is the Cheery Lynn Cuties Fringe 4
I LOVE how fast these are to make, how cute they turn out...
the paper used for the flowers and the bird is My Minds Eye Meadow Lark
looks like different paper doesn't it??
I also used once again, my first purchased ever die from Cheery Lynn
the French Pastry Doily
other products used are Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish
Tim Holtz Alterations Caged Bird
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Kaiser Kraft Black Pearls
most of the products I have used can be purchased from Joan's Gardens
I am also entering this in the challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs to "Think Spring"
