I am entering this card in the Verve Spring Has Sprung and the Seize the Sketch #15 Challenges. The Verve challenge is to make a springy card with florals, pretty colors & inspirational quotes.
Spring comes to Indiana in many forms from flurries & cold temperatures, mild breezes & warm sunshine to storms & rain showers. Many a Saturday, I can be found in my long underwear, wrapped up in a quilt on the soccer field watching my grandsons play. We will be getting ready to do that again soon. After the extremely cold Winter we have had, I am hoping for a milder Spring. Surely Mother Nature won't throw two extreme seasons at us in a row!
I just received from Verve this beautiful Poppy Birthday set as a prize from a previous challenge. Thanks so much, Verve! I wanted to use this stamp set because in my garden in the Spring I have beautiful orangy red poppies. The patterned paper reminded me a lot of the the poppy image on the stamp. The sentiment is another Verve prize. I love this quote from Dickens about Nature Gives to Every Season a Beauty All Its Own. It seemed appropriate for this card. Thanks so much for coming by to look!
