Spring Blooms & peony branch

Hi all! Here is a card that I made for the Kit of the Month Wednesday over at the PWCO Blog.


I used the adorable Spring Blooms stamp from the A Day in the Life of Abigail C collection.


The colored cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon are from the April PaperCard Kit. I love the springy colors in this kit! The orange cardstock is punched with the Apron Lace punch. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.


I made this card for the poppystamps blog the other day. The stamp that I used is peony branch and the patterned paper is from the Frond collection by Memory box. The sentiment is also from Memory Box.

That's all for today. Have a lovely day! =)

Both stunning cards Alice ;)
I wish I could grow cute heart flowers like those, in my garden! And your soft peony design is adorable. Reminds me of the peonies in my wedding bouquet.

Ooh! Loving the colors on the first card... of course both are as sweet as can be! Hee, I just read your comment. yes, I stamped the bee image on a stamp block, you know those old shadow blocks with no images. Then used the mirror image to stamp on paper again. the image wasn't as crisp as I'd like so I went over it with a fine black pen. HTH!
