Springing into Spring

We've certainly had a few lovely, warm spring days here, and even though it's colder again now, the sun is still shining and making everything look pretty and colourful :)  Spring IS my favourite time of year!!

And A Passion for Papertrey's most recent challenge - Sprining into Spring - was just the ticket:

I pulled out my PTI Vintage Picnic stamps, stamped the dotty basket onto Bashful Blue card, cut it out and coloured the dots in white.  Then I added the tulips image to the top of the basket and watercoloured it in fresh pink and green.  Cut it out with circle nesties and a Regal Rose scallop nestie mat to match.  More Bashful Blue card, embossed with Swiss dots, and a Regal Rose lace border, plus a matching pink ribbon to finish off.  I'm really quite pleased with it, and it definitely says spring to me :)  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Gosh what a pretty card Anne, I love the fresh colours and your pearl/scallop border is just beautiful.

  2. It definitely says spring to me too, Anne! Love that sweet colour combo!
