Sweet and Springy

Good Morning!

Happy Monday to you all! Hope you had a nice weekend. The weather was beautiful here. It was sunny and in the 50's both days. Great weather for getting outside with the kids. We rode bikes and ran around, they had a blast. It was so nice to open up the windows and let in the fresh air too. I can't wait until we can leave them open every day!

Today I have a card to share which I created for a few challenges. It's an easel card with a Magnolia image and some new Heidi Grace papers.

I used the sketch from the challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenges with these pretty and Springy papers in pinks and greens. I distressed the edges and also added stitching. I colored my Tilda with Copics and highlighted with white gel pen. Then I added some Stickles to the edging and below her feet. I've embellished with Prima flowers, roses and Stickles, and some ribbon.

Here's the full view of the easel shape which fits the challenges at Lili of the Valley and Magnolia Down Under. I finished off the card with a sentiment from the set Oval Snippets available at Whimsy Stamps and my oval punches. I added a piece of ribbon with brads and another flower with Stickles. And this card also fits the challenges at Kaboodle Doodles for birthdays and Stamp with Fun's theme of Spring.

Thanks for dropping over today! I hope you have a great Monday!

Happy Stamping,
