Happy Wednesday everyone! Today at My Paper Crafting the theme is spring. With thoughts of flowers and rain and puddles in mind, I created this...

The colors are slightly muted on my card, I think in part because it's been a bit dreary here the last few days. Spring in my part of the world does include rain and umbrellas. This cute little girl was cut from "A Child's Year" Cricut cartridge at 3 1/2". The background paper is one I picked up on clearance at Michael's over the weekend. It is a double sided piece by Basic Grey, from the Out of Print collection. I really like it and may need to go see if they have a couple more sheets. I embossed the flowered side with the Juli's Garden Cuttlebug folder. I inked over the embossing with a yellow ink pad I picked up somewhere along the way. All of the edges of the background pieces were slightly distressed and inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The seam binding was from a friend. I actually chose part of the color palette to match it. The flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the bling and pearl are from my stash. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful day and great beginning of Spring!

  3. Fabulous card Lynn! I love the spring paper and your die cut is perfect for spring, unless you live here, then you still need your snow shovel this year! It's snowing as I'm typing this, boo hoo. lol

  4. This is so beautiful! The paper, colors and embossing really make the silhouette cut of the girl pop. I just love this!
