Spring is Back


I made this card a few months ago for a challenge and of course I completely missed the deadline so I just shoveled it into storage. Since we are taking this week's TESC off, I thought it's time to share it with you.


The image is called Spring is Back and it's illustrated by Sarah Kay. Isn't she so pretty with all her spring flowers!


I paired her with the beautiful Thrift Shop collection from October Afternoon. Then sentiment is from Nina Brackett's versatile Heartily Yours Additions set and the border punch is from Martha Stewart.


The size of this card as well as yesterday's card is 5" x 5". I used to make matching envelopes for the cards that I made, but I don't do it anymore. If I were to mail this card, I would wrap it with tissue paper and mail it in a padded envelope.

That's all for today. Hope you have a fabulous Friday!



Thanks for stopping by!

I love Sarah Kay images. You colored her beautifully! I love the layout of your card, how you punched a border on top of the paper and of course that gorgeous OA paper you used. The flowers are a perfect way to finish off this gorgeous card.
Have a wonderful weekend!
