Spring Inspiration with Cheery Lynn Designs

Thursday greetings to you!  It's my lucky day to share a project over on the Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

Right now where I live, we are in the midst of a super sub zero arctic deep freeze. To brighten my spirits I decided to create a card with some cheerful colors and a hint of Spring to it.

"I Like You" (A2 Card)

I recently received a few new dies, the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame and the Bird on a Branch and I wanted to use them. I layered the Dutch Doily Rectangle Frame on top of a pretty card stock base that had a floral design in the bottom right corner.

Next, I pierced the scallop interior holes in the Doily Frame for texture. I cut the Alpine Doily Flourish from a scrap piece of vellum and layered it in the middle of the frame.

Next, I cut several varieties of florals using the Sunflower, Embellishments #3, Sweet Williams Strip, Dandelions and Tea Rose Medium. I also cut a pair of Wheat Heads. I mixed up my Sunflower layers for fun. The Sweet Williams Strip florals were lightly misted, scrunched up and inked, then glued together.

I layered in the Bird on a Branch and then completed the card with a few crystals and pearls along with the sentiment frame at the top. A tiny bit of gold string added a little texture to the floral composition.

I hope you liked my card today, I had a lot of fun making it!
