Anxious for Spring!

I am so anxious for Spring to get here!  I love all the bright fun colors that represent Spring and warmer temps!  It was fun working on this card and being able to use the Spring colors.  The patterned paper is from Blossoms and Butterflies by DCWV, the mat was embossed using Sizzix's Flowers, Sparkly folder, and the hat is cut from Kate's ABC's.  I used ColorBox Chalk Ink Warm Violet to ink around the edges of the mat and circles.  I added a touch of bling to the hat and the Recollection flowers.  The sketch is from MojoMonday's 281 challenge.  I am also entering this card in My Craft Spot's challenge of Flowers and Pause Dream Enjoy's challenge of Use a Hat.  When I decide who and what I am going to give this card to and for, I will stamp a sentiment either at the bottom, or in the top corner.  Thanks for checking in!


  1. What an adorable card. Love your use of colors.

  2. What a sweet card! I love the embossed background and cute hat! Thanks for playing at My Craft Spot!

  3. Like the Spring/Easter feel of your Hat card. I'm so looking forward to Spring also. Here in Central TX today temps were in 60s. Forecast for tomorrow is colder temps & rain. Thank you for entering PDE Hat challenge.
