lovely spring cards
did you have a nice Easter? we got up very early to see if the Easter Bunny paid a visit to our house, and indeed he had! then, after sampling each new toy that he delivered, it was off to a family party/egg hunt where Mr. Bagubian had a blast! i think Nemy did, too--she was very good the entire afternoon despite having had just a quick nap. the best part of the day was when the kids went to bed early, which meant Mommy and Daddy could go to bed early, too. ahh, simple pleasures...
spring is most definitely in the air and i am focusing heavily on it in my projects lately. i can't help myself--the colors, the birds, the butterflies, the florals--they're all so pretty. back in March, i spent a few days making cards with the Flea Market collection from Crate Paper. it was the 2nd line from Maggie Holmes and my most favorite that she has done.
this card is only embellished with a handful of items, but that's one of the things i like most about it--you don't always need to pile on the details. each element is textured, too, from the canvas photo frames, to the paper doily, to the gold foil of the butterfly Standout, so again, not much else was needed.
on the other end of the spectrum, there is this card. it's definitely got more going on than the first, and many more layers & bits. everything here again is from Flea Market, with the exception of the "today" badge--which came from an older Studio Calico kit. the "Happy Birthday" stamp is in the Bountiful Banners set by Papertrey Ink
i hope to be back again in a few days, but just in case i'm not, have a great week! as always, thanks for stopping by!
