Spring...or snow?

Well, I woke up this morning to snow flurries! We only have maybe an inch on the ground, but still...I am ready for flowers, green grass, and bunny rabbits! ;)

I was excited to get to play in a few challenges this weekend! I have been kind of absent from them because I spent the last 2 weeks doing some scrapbooking. I seem to neglect the books to make cards! Oops!

I played this week with Paper Pretties (Spring is in the Air) and Pals Paper Arts (Embossing). I background embossed the Crumb Cake layer with a SU embossing plate and I also embossed the image on watercolor paper.

Thanks for looking! I hope you see sunshine and blue skies today!

Stamps: Everyday Miracles (Paper Pretties)
Paper: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizazz, DCWV Linen pack, Watercolor Paper
Ink: Palette Noir, Watercolored with SU ink
Accessories: Clear EP, Half-backed Pearls, Crumb Cake Ribbon, SU Embossing Plate, MS Branch Punch

Beautiful! I love the subtle colors. I love the way your image looks on watercolor paper. Fabulous card!

I'm ready for spring to arrive also. My girls are on spring break this week but I don't think Mother Nature got the memo. We woke up to snow and it's been snowing off and on all day. Ugh!

Wow, this card has lots of great layers! Love the embossed panel, the die-cut leaves, scalloped oval with bling and of course the beautiful stamping. And I hope you'll share some of those scrap pages with us! I'm a scrapper too who has been spending too much time on cards.
