Flourishes' March Sneak Peeks, Day Two

Soooooo, what did you think about yesterday's peek? Gorgeous, right? Right! Well, hold on to your hats, 'cause today is going to be every bit as wonderful!


Introducing Spring Is Sprung! Be still my heart! SUCH amazing images in this set. I'm using only one of them for my card today, one that just screams SPRING to me.


I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored it with Copic markers, cut it out, and sponged it with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The patterned paper I'm using is 7 Gypsies' Conservatory and it's perfect with this image, don't you think? The sentiment is stamped on the ledger paper and all of the patterned paper is edge distressed. I think this image is so rustic looking and begged for it :) Following that theme, I added some twine and a button and felt it was finished.
