I made this spring card with a stamp from Stampendous - love the sweet little chick all dressed up in her flowery bonnet. Lots of flowers in the background paper, and I also added a few to bring out the colours in the paper, and a leaf sprig (Quickutz die). The Spellbinders Opulent Ovals border frame is sponged with TH Tumbled Glass and a touch of Faded Jeans distress ink and covered in Rock Candy dry glitter added on with "heat & stick" embossing powder. There is a touch of Rock Candy Stickles glitter on the flowers as well. The lattice in the background is a Spellbinders Shapeabilities Expandable die. Inside the card, I used another Stampendous stamp "Happy Spring" (very vintage with filigrees all around the words). A big faux silk bow completes the upper corner. I hope all the bright colours will bring a touch of spring to my friend.
Sorry, the photo is a little over-exposed. It was such a dark day when I made the card. Then the sun came out briefly and I rushed to get a pic, so I could get the card in the mail.
