March Blast From The Past!!!






Hi there.  Can you believe it's March already?  Wow!!  Where has this year gone to already?  It's that time of the month again - Taylored Expressions Blast From The Past Blog hop!!  This month our challenge is all about spring.  My idea of spring is blossoms on the trees with new green leaves.  So with that in mind, along with another migraine, I pulled out my Branching Out and Branching Out Coordinates sets.

I started by stamping my images on white card stock in memento tuxedo black ink and then coloring with prismacolor markers.  Once my animal images & birdhouse were colored, I set them aside for cutting out and popping up later.  I then ran some Stampin Up! pacific pointe and green galore card stock through my big shot with a leaves cuttlebug embossing folder.  Once my dry embossing was done, with the layers added, I took my main image, layered it then stippled some Stampin Up! bashful blue ink around the edges for the sky. 

I then added a butterfly brad I had found at Michael's in the top left corner, while adding some Making Memories white baby brads in the remaining corners.  After cutting out my extra images and popping them up on  mini pop dots, I then added some small green primas to look like blossoms with a Stampendous bling sticker center.  Another prima flower with a brad center, and a Martha Stewart green grossgrain bow finished the card off.

Not bad, even on the freakin migraine meds again.  Now make sure you stop by the rest of the hop participants (listed below) for some more eye candy and please leave some love on their blogs as well.









Have a great day!!
