Think Spring

I have a workshop tomorrow, and Spring has been my inspiration for the cards. Its turning very green here in Nebraska. We've had some Spring rains this week, and more are on the way!

The first, using the You Make Me Happy set was cased from SCS (from a post by JustineMarie) because I love the bright colors and the layout. I try not to outright case very often, but my brain was tired tonight! My week got away from me again. The only change I made was to the ribbon. The original had solid red, with added gingham and white. I liked just the gingham because of the texture of this set.

The second is my own creation using the All Thru the Year set. One of those sets I had to have when the catalog came out last July, and am just now getting around to using! I don't think I've had it since July, but it has been awhile. I'm glad I finally tried it!


I dyed cream ribbon using a sponge dauber on the Perfect Plum Pad to match the background cardstock. I just inked my pad so it's a tad dark, but it still works. If trying this, make sure you give it time to dry or you'll have smudges. And watch your fingers-they will be inky!
Have a GREAT weekend!

ok, now i see what you mean by the scanner not showing these to their best advantage, because the flower card in real life is SO PRETTY! the colors are awesome.
