Color Trends & FMS #24 ~ Happy Spring!

Welcome! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Ours was filled with much relaxation and together time. Can't beat that ~ right!! I'm branching out again and have a card today for the Color Trends challenge. Look at this sweet spring filled color photo! I type this as I long for spring while looking out the window watching the snowflakes softly falling. We awoke to a snow covered ground this morning and have have light flurries all day. It's actually really pretty ~ Ha!! And of course my snow crazed Max is a happy boy!


I started with this pretty floral paper from MME: Miss Caroline/Howdy Doody. It had all of the colors so it provided a good jumping off point! Next I added the cute gingham layer punched with a Martha Stewart lattice edge punch. It's the flip side of the floral paper. The label is MFT die cut from the same paper collection and stamped with a Paper Inspirations sentiment and teeny butterflies from BasicGrey. The great colored buttons along the top are by October Afternoon. The oval and scalloped oval are Marvey punches. This sweet bunny is from Impression Obsession. All of the little items under the bunny are Stamps by Judith. My scalloped oval is mounted with foam tape and the bunny was fussy cut then popped up as well. A touch of sparkle in the tiny blue flowers in the floral paper as well as the bunny and little yellow flowers beneath her completes my spring card.

I followed the latest Freshly Made Sketches for the design but was too late to enter ~ bummer! Have a splendid week and thanks for stopping by to visit! ~Lisa

Wow, look at that gorgeous floral DP! Makes me happy. ;-) This is a perfect interpretation for the Spring challenge. I am about as sick of snow as I can get, but I know we're not finished with it yet. *sigh* Love how you've framed the bunny on the ovals, and that lattice punch is one of my all-time favorites. Those buttons are super cute! Nice work. ;-)
