Spring Swap

This is a card I made for a Spring Swap and I found the background in a bargin bin and it sparkles, I don't know if you can tell and just over layed it on tope of blue cardstock.  The flowers are one from something I found and thanks to my Copic pens I was able to dye them to the same shade as the background paper.  The  flowers are all made with Stickles. Oh how I love anything that glitters LOL>  The image (digi) is from Beccy'splace.blogspot.com . I couldn't pass it up and I know it is one I will use alot.   Oh the leaves, I have to tell you.  My daughter had a small die for her Sidekick and I was playing with it and just used some card stock sitting there and punched out the leaves. Threw them aside and then when I was making the card, it needed something else and being we are still traveling I didn't have anything much with me.  Then bingo, I remembered those leaves in the corner. LOL and they matched the background and the flowers.  I don't know what I will ever do when I get a stamping room again.  Learning to improvise has been challenging but I have some of the most magnificent girls on my stamping list and they take such good care of me. Thank you girls.  Hugs, Cathy
