Phew after a long weekend..I am pooped, but happy. That is what matters. The best part? The sun is shinning and the flowers are popping everywhere. Oh...how much I love to see the yellow from the daffodils, the new leaf green (Did I just mention a copic color?) and the purples of crocuses and pansies! Can you tell I love spring and the colors that come with it? : ).
In anticipation on what to come and to celebrate mother nature I created this Magnolia card with huge flowers. I love to add a little texture to my cards, so once more I reached for my adored micro beads. I created the center of my flowers with i-toppers, copic markers and yes you got it! Micro brads! The picture does not make justice to the yumminess on how this came out. If you have not seen i-top tool, go check it out. You can make your own brads...it is sooooo cool to use!
To add a little extra touch of spring, I used mini jewels to mimic dew drops on the corner of my card. I will tell you, it took me quite a while to color the flower heads in that embossed background! Yes I am a nut, but I had so much fun! I really hope you liked this card, and I dream of more lovely inspirations coming from the season that just started! Happy spring and if you feel happy drop me a note here...I would love it!
Now hurry to Magnolia Stamp Lovers and participate on our latest challenge! Vivi is hosting a die cut challenge! Come over and link your Magnolia card! You could win one of the newest stamps from Magnolia. The bride and groom! Thank you Cindy for sponsoring the goods!
