I really wanted to make a second card for the CAS54 challenge - Wishing for Spring. Probably because I can't wait for Spring to arrive, and I want to be surrounded by the sights of Spring! Like many of my stamps, I have had this one for a long time, and it has never seen ink. Lately, I have been making more of an effort to use some of my neglected stamps. Something about feeling guilty...
I am kicking myself right now because I had the perfect sentiment out and ready to use, then I forgot all about it. It says "have a sunshiney day", and I like that so much better than "happy spring". I may just have to make another card!
This image is watercolored, then cut out with a Nestabilities label die. After embossing, I left the paper in the die to sponge the sky and grass, leaving a white border. I tied a piece of thread around the ribbon to gather it a little bit under the button.
