Trying to think spring!

Depending where you are in the world, here in Canada we are in the middle of winter. Literally! They say that last week and this week, are the middle of winter. So I can only look forward to next week, and being closer to spring. That, and the snow storm currently blowing through, we only have Super Bowl  to warm our hearts! 

So in keeping with the spring theme I have this card to share with you:


I have used Stampin up papers, including the special embossed paper currently being offered for sale-a-bration, ribbons and stamps, a doily and the sizzix flower die.

If you are like me, you may have one or two of these in your stash. You buy them and figure they are too finicky to use. I gave myself a challenge and this is the product. I used my McGill tools to work the petals, along with some ink for shading. 


I also used some blendabilities to darken the centre of the flower. Another view:


I will be doing this card in an upcoming class. Hope to see you there.
