Sunday Stamps | SSC 148 Banner Love

This week's Sunday Stamps challenge is outlined below...

I've never created a card using this layout so it was an exciting challenge.  You may have read in my prior posts that I received an order recently with many new stamps, papers, ink colors, dies, impression folders and punches.  In addition, I was able to order most of the free Sale-A-Bration items and as a result, I'm so excited to explore each and every item....one at a time.

Because spring is in the air in southwestern Ontario and although winter hasn't quite wanted to let go, I though that using my new Circle of Spring stamp set and Wonderous Wreath Framelits would be perfect for this challenge.  I'm still not very comfortable with using designer series paper so you will see it rarely in my projects and usually, it will be paper that I received free from a sale-a-bration event (this DSP is from 2016 sale-a-bration however I think that the Falling in Love DSP #142788 would have been perfect for this project).

Here's my submission.  I'd love to know what you think...

Another simple card with great impact...and so perfect for Mother's Day. Such a fresh breath of spring air.  

Stamp and die cut the wreath image. Color using watercolor markers and blend with aqua painter.  Layer on cardstock and adhere using dimensionals.  Punch out butterflies from glimmer paper and adhere rhinestones. Using mini glue dots, adhere to card front.  Wrap bakers twine and tie in bow.  Using dimensionals adhere top layers to card base and second layer. 

I hope you like this project as much as I do.
