Hello Spring!!

Spring is here!
Spring is here!
How do u think i know?
I just saw a butterfly/bee/blue bird 
And that is how i know....

This is the first rhyme taught to my little one when he joined KG1, in last Spring. His favorite one too.

And today's card is about the Spring mood...Handmade Blooms in pastel shades to welcome the lovely season :) Made this card with just Cheery Lynn Designs Die only!

Used patterned papers from Zephyr paperpad and these are matted on the White CS. The front panel edges are jagged with scissors and on it mounted the Teal blue panel to which handmade blooms are added. To CLD Tropical Fluorish die, a baby pink Tulle is spread and on top of it all handmade blooms are added.

The big roses are made from peach duplex papers using the CLD Gardenia die, and those rose buds (white, yellow, peach) are made using the same die. Duplex paper gave a nice texture to the rose and rose buds. The yellow flaky kind flowers are made using the stamen kind patterns in CLD embellishments (B256) die and sepals of rose buds are made from same die.

Close up shot of Floral spray:

CLD olive branches and CLD rose strips die is used to make the floral cluster. CLD small exotic butterfly with wings die is used to made the butterflies and few pearls,tendrils added as final touch.

Blooms :)

Sentiment is added on a banner and placed near the floral spray. Used tracing wheel to make the faux stitches.
This is all for today...Hope you like it!
