Spring Bringer

I thought I'd take my picture outside while it was cloudy.  I figured that meant no direct sunlight so thought it might make a good picture.  It's a little dark but I still like it.  I hung it in my plum tree.  LOL! 

Even though it's not spring I wanted to use this image because of the huge bouquet of flowers.  The image is a Wee Stamp called "Spring Bringer".  I wish someone would come up with "Summer Stayer".  LMBO!  I guess I could always move some where hot year round....ok not really.  Dang-it!  LOL!

 At Live and Love Crafts Inspiration, this week we are showcasing KEYS!  And what a selection there is!  I managed to sneak 2 awesome keys onto my card.

 I distressed all the edges using my Zutter distresser and then added cocoa Momento to all edges.

 I've used a few Magnolia dies here which are the Tilda Lace border die, Leaf and Swirl and So Wrapped Lovely.   I tied up a big lace bow and added a key onto the heart die.

As you can see it's a thank you card so I distressed each letter and then adhered it to the arched piece of cardstock.  I made the flower under the cream colored rose center and added some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  The foam stems are from LLC but you won't see any cream colored ones.  I actually painted those so they would match and they paint and dry rather nicely.  hee hee

More Wild Orchid Craft flowers, one ginormous Paislee flower and another gorgeous key from LLC.  I also added some lace underneath, which you can barely see peeking out.

Well that's all I have to show this week.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
