Hello, Spring!

Hello, Spring! The flowers are blooming, the grass is getting green, and the blossoms on my front tree are getting ready to flower! We've had our fair share of rainy days as well, so I decided to mix the many joys of Spring on today's card.

One of my dearest stamping friends Amy Rohl made a card last year using an umbrella image to hold a bouquet of flowers. I just LOVED it and it inspired today's design, even though I haven't actually seen the card in months! LOL! Some things just stand out in your mind, ya know?

I started my design by stamping some fun florals from one of my favorite sets "Bitty Bouquet". The cute umbrella image is from another one of my favorites,"Scattered Showers" by PTI, along with its coordinating die. I chose a springy color palette to make it pop! Of course I can't seem to get enough of this lattice die from the "Garden Gate: Make-it-Market kit"!

The background was dry embossed using an embossing folder I picked up at Hobby Lobby by The Paper Studio. The "Hello" sentiment is also from "Bitty Bouquets" and was wet embossed using gold powder. A cute button from my stash, threaded with button twine adds a nice detail as well.
I finished the design off with some crystal clear sequins to represent some rain drops! I just love this simple, springy design! Thanks for fluttering by! Follow me on Instagram @kellylunceford

You are so sweet and so is this card, Kelly! LOVE all of the spring colors and texture. Ok, I'm off to look at your previous post with all of those darling baby boy goodies! Nobody puts together an ensemble like you, my dear friend!

Kelly, your projects are always so gorgeous! I recently rediscovered you, and love your work so much, that I added you to my favorite list of blogs over on the Papertrey forum!
I always liked what you did with the SU Tender Toile set, especially with that cute bunny! I still have that set and need to pull it out and create something!
