Spring Colors

I just love the colors of this spring line of papers from We R Memory Keepers!
I used a portion of a scalloped edge circle for this card.  It was easy to cut with the grid in the center.  I simply held the paper up to a window with a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of paper behind it.  Then I could see where to cut in order to get a nice layout of flowers.  I layered it over a coordinating tiny print stitched onto the card front.  I added ribbons under the scallops and 3 buttons (Hero Arts) to the scallops.  "Spring" is stamped using Lettuce Paint Dabber by Ranger.  The stamp is also from We R Memory Keepers. This was fun to put together....the colors sure brightened my spirit. 

We need some bright cheery colors to get us through this winter here in Minnesota!  Land of ever moving snow as far as the eye can see! 
Today, we had a dusting of snow.  It's amazing how that little bit of snow can turn into white outs and huge drifts on the country roads.  I barely made it through our road to get home.  We'll have to blow it open to get out in the morning. 
I hope this card brightens your day!  Spring is near!
