Happy Spring!

The first day of spring was yesterday (hurray!) and to celebrate I made a bright and cheery flower card. The layout was inspired by the ever talented Lisa Johnson; you can see her card here.

The flower bouquet image is from Happy Moments and has actually never seen ink. I've pulled it out many times to use on a card, but somehow I always ended up going in a different direction. So I'm super happy to finally have used it, it's so cute! Like my last card, I stamped it in Versa Fine so that I could water color it without having the outline bleed.

I adhered the small turquoise ribbon loop with red sticky tape, then sewed the button to overlap slightly.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a marvelous week!
