SC218 - Live Like You Mean It

It's spring here in Florida, at least for today anyway. It is a beautiful 74 degrees with a blue sky and sunshine! Last week it was chilly; temps didn't budge over 50 degrees. While creating this card last night, I thought this stamp set reminded me of spring when I lived up north. The card base is kiwi kiss (I absolutely, positively LOVE kiwi kiss) with Basic Grey's Urban Prairie DP. I stamped the flowers in chocolate chip and colored two of the flowers in the barely banana and the leaves with kiwi kiss. I added some adhesive rhinestones to the center of each of the flowers. I used my color spritzer tool for the first time and love it! Very easy to use and I like the results. I added some chocolate ribbon pieces on the left for some added interest.

Below is what the inside of the card looks like. I used my Nestabilities and some scraps and used one of my felt flowers with an antique brad for dimension. TFL!

Hi

Just added you to my blog as a fellow Splitcoast Sister! I look forward to visiting you regularly.

Lovely card, really like the sentiment on the top one!

Very jealous of your weather - it has been sunny here in southern England the last few days, but nowhere near 72!
