Hello!  Since it’s the third Monday of the month, it’s time for another challenge at Cards in Envy.  Our theme for the next few weeks is “Spring is in the Air”.  Let anything related to the season of Spring inspire your creativity when you make a card for this challenge – flowers, colors, animals, whatever seems like Spring to you!  Remember that for our challenges, all cards must be A2 sized and cannot have lumpy, bumpy embellishments more than 1/4″ thick.

One of my favorite things about Spring is that flowers start blooming.  Even though we’ve had a lot of cold, snowy weather over the last month, the daffodils in my flower border are starting to put out foliage.  In anticipation of them showing their sunshiny-yellow blossoms, I’ve used a daffodil stamp for my card and colored it in representation of the daffodils that grew in my family’s yard when I was growing up.  The layout is OWH Stars & Stamps sketch #B-17 – a bonus sketch from a 2012 blog hop.  I’ve turned the sketch on its side and stamped the sentiment directly onto the main panel of the card rather than making a small panel especially for it.  The vertical strip of designer paper is some pretty old stuff, and the green cardstock is a retired Stampin’ Up color, so I’m continuing on my personal goal of actually using up some of my older stamping supplies.

  1. Beautiful spring card Patricia! I love the daffodils! It’s been so long since spring I almost couldn’t spell the name of the flowers. LOL Love the green and yellow papers and great sketch too!
