Just a Note

Monday, April 10, 2017

Spring has definitely sprung around these parts.  Last week was nothing but miserable rain but this week the forecast is nothing but glorious sunshine and warmer than normal temperatures.  I plan to take advantage of this good weather and go for a walk on my lunch-hour each day.  A half hour walk with the sun on my face is just the thing to put me in a great mood!

And speaking of spring, the colors this week at Color Throwdown were definitely inspired by the season.  I combined them with the sketch at Fab Friday to create a fun floral card.

It's been a while since I've used these funky floral stamps and I forgot how much I love them!  They may not be elegant like the tulips in the inspiration photo but they have a fun, whimiscal look that I love.  I paired them with a simple sentiment in a no-nonsense font and a bit of washi tape.  I stuck on a couple of enamel dots to take up some of that white space too.

Thanks for stopping by!

I love this bright fresh card! The flowers are really fun and look great in those colors. I bet they would work for fireworks in the summer too! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
