Spring Blossoms

Happy Tuesday, my friends! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my anniversary post. You are the best! =)

Here is a card that I made for Stampavie Design Team Blog's "hot/summer" challenge.

I used the beautiful Spring Blossoms stamp illustrated by Sarah Kay for my card. The sentiment is from Nina Brackett's versatile Heartily Yours Additions.

Mmmm... I know this is a spring stamp, but I used summery colors and hope it still qualifies for the challenge...

I paired her with the yummy Thrift Shopcollection from October Afternoon. The ribbon is from May Arts. I inked the sentiment label with some tea dye while the paper was still in the die.


That's all I have for today. Hope a fantastic day! =)


Thanks for stopping by!
