Touch of spring

As many of you may have noticed I tend to go toward earth tones when making some of my cards, but today I went with bright colors.  Spellbinders was having a sale just before Christmas with dies half off so you know I had to take advantage of that, I went with the white base to this, that way when I stenciled through the die you would see the colors better, do you know how hard it was for me to have that much white :)  All of the decorating inside the die came from that same set.

Spellbinders - Labels 50 Decorative Accents die
Raspberry Road Designs - paper
Penny Black - Sprinkles and smiles sentiment stamp
Stickles - flower centers

I am so excited the sun is shining this morning, we have not seen the sun in a few days and it is just wonderful!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Connie, what a beautiful die! I too find it hard to pass up a sale. I don't think I know how much stuff I really have. Lovely card!

You're a brave girl, Connie, to venture forth with all that white! I'm loving it more and more lately, but not exclusively. I still want to do a little bit of everything. My favorite white cards are those that include something colorful and a little bit of designer paper. Throw in a pretty die cut and even better. Your card has it all! Love the sentiment and your steal of a deal die. Enjoy that sunshine while it lasts!
