Rebirth of Spring

This is my post today on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.
Don't forget, our "Raining Cats and Dogs" challenge ends tonight,
there is a wonderful prize being offered...we would love to
have you join us!!!

Hi Classy friends, Diane with you today with my mind set on "Spring"!!
I am just beginning to see the tulips and daffodils sprouting up out of the snow.
Since I can't see the real thing yet, I thought I would do the next best thing
and create a card with "Spring" in mind.

This card came together very quickly, but, yet, I think it makes quite a statement!!


I started my card using Banana Split Pop Tone 110#  paper for my card base.
I used the new,gorgeous Bo Bunny Soft Shades Double Dot Designs paper.
(However, by the time you read this, this paper may be sold out, as it is moving quickly...)

I basically just layered my card, starting with 
the Impression Obsession Twig Wreath.... 
cut 2 sets of Memory Box Dancing Tulips which I colored with Copics..
I stamped my sentiment on Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three popped up

The butterfly I cut using Joy Butterfly Trio....
To finish my card, I added 2 Baby Pearls White

I hope you have been "inspired" by some of the products I used today
to create "your" own "Spring" project.
Don't forget, CCNS, always has a weekly challenge going, we would love for "you" to join in!!

Entering in the following challenges:

A Creative Romance .... Spring Flowers
and
Alphabet Challenge .... "D" for Die Cuts

Lovely Spring card Diane! Those tulips look great, especially the way you colored them. I have seen this die but always passed it up. Now I think I need to give it a second look. Hope you and Nellie are doing well. Hugs, Curt
