Easter Blossoms Card

In the middle of a horrendous rain storm I was able to create a springy card today.  It rained so hard today it was like lions and wolves coming down instead of cats and dogs.  I am warm and dry in our trailer and had a most enjoyable day.  DH and I went out for breakfast to Lund to a place called Nancy's Cafe.  Oh my, they have the most awesomest (I know not a word but they truly are) sticky buns there.  We did not have them for breakfast, but brought some home to eat another time.  DH is out on the water today teaching a course and it is the day they do a night run.  I bet he is having an adventure out there.  Good thing it is a cabin boat and they will be warm and dry.
I created a card with the Stampin' Up! set Easter Blossoms available only until April 30th in the Occasions Mini Catalogue (page 17)......

I stamped the branch image in Soft Suede around the left hand side and the top of the card.  Then I stamped the little girl image in Bravo Burgundy on Whisper White cardstock and cut her out with nestabilities.  I wanted to use my Ovals and Scallop Ovals dies with my Big Shot, but I forgot to bring them with me.  Then I sponged on some Pink Pirouette ink around the stamped image.  After the ink was good and dry, I attached the oval to a scallop oval also cut out with nesties, then spritzed them with Champagne Mist Shimmer Spritz to add some bling.  Here is an upclose picture of the bling ...

Ah, love that glimmer.  A bow tied in Pretty In Pink satin ribbon is wrapped around the 3 layers.  I stamped Happy Easter in Bravo Burgundy ink on the bottom right hand corner.  I hope you get a chance to do some stamping today.  I feel a day without stamping, is like a day without sunshine, only a LOT better!!!
