LNS Spring is in the Air Challenge

This week's LNS challenge is to create a project with flowers in tribute to spring!  I wish spring was in the air here in Chicago; instead we are suppose to get a winter storm tomorrow!  I have to admit that I did a rush job on my card.  I ran all my errands to today (in case we really do get a big snow storm), and when I got home, I heard that one of the students from my son's high school was missing.  That really threw me for a loop since she was one of the football managers on my son's football team last year.  Hard to focus on stamping when you're praying like crazy that she is ok!  I am happy to report that she is has been found and is home safe and sound!

I created my card using the Artisan Embellishment Kit that is in the current Spring catalog.  I carefully sponged some Soft Suede on a doily and then rolled it to create a holder for the flowers.  I embossed a piece of 5-1/4" x 4" of Very Vanilla with the Lacy Brocade EF for the background.  Added the embellishments and ticket from the kit, and there you have it!  Easy, peasy!

Your turn!  When you're done with your tribute to spring, you can simply load your work of art HERE.

Here's the details on my card:

Stamps: Artisan Embellishment Kit
Papers: Very Vanilla
Accessories: Big Shot, Lacy Brocade EF, Pearls, Mini-Glue Dots, Adhesive
