WT314....Sending Springtime Smiles

Good Monday Morning Peeps!!! Hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Ways to Use It Challenge on splitcoast. The challenge was to Use a smile, something/anything that is smiling or use the word "smile" anywhere on your project.

I decided to use the sentiment from the Easter Blossoms stamp set. I also wanted to use the Nature Walk stamp set and the cool birdcage stamp that is in it. I used the flowers and colored them with my aqua painter and some old olive and bravo burgundy ink. I stamped the birdcage on a separate piece of card stock and cut it out and added it over the flowers. Looks kinda cute nestled in amongst the flowers huh?

The DS paper is another sneak peek if some new paper that will be available soon. I used very vanilla and chocolate chip card stock as well. I combined some very vanilla and crumb cake seam binding ribbon to make my bow and then finished it of with an antique brad. I added some basic pearls in the top corners.

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Vickie, I love, love, love this card. Once again you have used wonderful colors and produced a clean and elegant card. How did you do the large circle scallop with the holes in the scallops?
