Stay Wild


Hello and happy first day of spring! It's still a little cool here in Southeast Missouri but things are definitely starting to bloom here and I suspect I will have to start mowing my lawn in the next few weeks. I created this fun springtime card for the latest Addicted To Stamps And More card challenge. To create my card I layered some beautiful springtime patterned papers from Echo Park's Spring Fling 6x6 paper pad onto my white A2 card base. I added some black lines around the outer edge of the blue paper for a bit more visual interest and contrast. The focal image is a digital stamp from Angie Blom that I was gifted from a friend on a recent card swap. She shipped it to me uncolored so I colored it using my Copic markers to matc the colors in the plaid patterned paper and die cut it into a focal panel using a Gina Marie stitched rectangle die. I popped the panel up using 3M foam tape and adhered it to the card at a wonky angle. To finish it off I added some clear sparkling 6mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. Thank you for stopping off at my blog today and enjoy your weekend!

Wonderful coloring. Like the image with back facing; reminds me of as my daughter got older she did not want to be photographed as much so when she had first day of high school photographed her as she walked up the steps of the building.
