Hi Friend for CTD234 & CTS20

Saturday, March 23, 2013

Saturday has dawned bright and cheerful here in my neck of the woods.  I'm pretty sure that soon the threat of snow will stop and we can get down to the business of spring.  Everyone I talk to has had it up to "here" with the snow these past few weeks so when I see a sunny days like today I know it can't be long now.

On to my card that I made using the eye-catching colors at Color Throwdown.  At first these colors put me in mind of a Christmas card then I saw the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and tried something different.



I made a little pocket out of Basic Black punched with a circle.  Then I filled it with some leaves punched in Garden Green and Crumb Cake.  The pocket looked a little forlorn with no decoration so I punched a tiny flower in Real Red and adorned it with a little rhinestone.

Well that's it for me.  I'm off to run errands then to do a little cleaning around the house.  Yuck!  Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Lean on Me (Verve)
Accessories:  Meadow Leaf die (Poppystamps), Fresh Foliage die (Memory Box), Basic Rhinestone (SU)
