Spring Inspiration with Cheery Lynn Designs

Happy Monday to you!  It's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

The weather here has been incredibly beautiful! Our plants are coming in nicely and everything is so vibrant and pretty right now. This card today was inspired by the pretty colors of Spring in the new Enchanted Garden collection by BoBunny.  I love the greens and blues with the purple.

I used the Anastasia Border to frame in my second layer.  On top of that I used my Scalloped Rectangle Cardmaker Classic. The Ivy Corner Flourish was next and anchors in the Shuttered Window with Flower Box.

Once I selected my background layers I knew I wanted to use the Window as my focal point of the card.  I cut a piece of vellum and laid a piece of cheese cloth on top to layer behind the windowframe to soften the look. I tucked behind the Sentiment Frame on the very top.

Designer's Tip:  To attach the vellum and cheese cloth, I used a tiny stapler on the top of the window frame. The staples are hidden and it was easier to secure than with glue.

A mixture of tiny florals from the Babies Breath Flower Kit were mixed in with my Princess Tree to resemble lilacs. I then added some Roses into the Flower Box and a Daisy on the right side to anchor it. I added a few gems and glitter glue to finish off my card.
