Spring is in the air.....

We've had snow on and off all day today, so not sure Spring is particularly in the air yet! I don't feel as bad today, thanks for all your good wishes, just a seasonal bug which is lingering.
I've used my new Graphic 45 stamps for this card and as I cannot get hold of the papers (sold out everywhere) I broke into two sheets of my Websters paper pad. I've used TH sparkling lemonade and shaded lilac to colour the image and then peacock feathers to stamp the main sentiment. To cut around the image I have used the new spellbinder A2 distressed edges die. It doesn't fit exactly so I kept moving it around to get the desired effect. I can't tell you how much I love this die, to be able to cut a perfect distressed edge is marvellous to me!
Although it has no bunnies etc hopefully it is allowed at the challenge at Allsorts for Springtime and for Vintage Stamping - spring is in the air.

I really love the muted tones around the image Lynn and the blue ribbon picking out the shades of the backing.

Thank you so much sharing with us FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges.

Hope you're feeling better, hubby saw fit to pass his flu on to me and as you say it lingers.
