Spring is in the air



It felt like spring today! yes, I know, I live in Florida where it feels like spring almost all year, but it was truly beautiful outside today. I even decided to work in the yard instead of going to the gym. I think I worked my arms more with the rake than I would have with the weights!

In honor of this beautiful day, I made this daisy card. I used certainly celery for the card base and the Sarah designer papers for the front. The big daisies on the topper are actually made with paper frosting. I saw a booth for this at the scrap expo I went to a couple weekends ago. I only bought one stencil because...there was only one I liked! I like things that are really versatile and can be used in lots of different ways. This stencil has paisly, daisies, and polka dots on it. I just used the daisies here. I am sure the frosting will work with the SU brass stencils too. I will play with them soon. I added a yellow bead to the middle of the daisies to mimic the flowers in the background. I layered the key tag and label punchs and added some gold mini brads to finish it off. This is one of the first items I have used my spiral punch on. It was kind of confusing when I looked at the punch image in the mini catalog but when I actually got it, it is really cool! It lines up so easily. I am sure I will be using it more. I don't usually use so many different things on a card, but I think they came together well. What do you think??

I hope you are having some spring at your house! If you don't have any yard work...I still have some left I can share with you!

I really like the springy card. It really does make me think of a light, happy, spring! Good choice of colors, etc. Great card!
