I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy Spring

And, Happy Friday everyone!

I'm always so glad when the weekend rolls around!

I'm still making a few Easter cards and the color combination at Color Throwdown this week works well for a Spring themed card. In fact, I used the inspiration photo for the subject as well as the colors.

Cecile's Freshly Made Sketch works perfectly for the stamps that I used, as they are square shaped stamps. They actually have a square black line around the flower images, but I chose to cut it off with the stitched dies.

The patterned paper is Lawn Fawn. The images are stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics. I cut them out with Square Stitched dies and arranged them according to Cecile's sketch. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and I used my Misti to get the placement just right. All in all, very simple.

Have a fabulous weekend and as always, thanks for coming by my blog.
