Shades of Spring | Happy Birthday with Heather

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here, and it's my turn on the Winnie & Walter blog today to share the card I've created using Shades of Spring as inspiration.  I love spring, if I had to pick a favorite season, it'd be tied for first place (along with fall).  There's just something about the sunshine and all the beautiful colors that pop up during the spring time that make me so happy.

To create my card today, I started with a medium gray card base, and adhered a strip of silver glitter CS to the left edge.  I then adhered a strip of aqua patterned CS on the left edge as well before adding some silver metallic twine.  Next, I stamped the solid flowers and leaves from the Big, the Bold and Extras were stamped in pink, purple and green.  Once the inks dried, I stamped the silhouette images on top with versamark ink before heat embossing with white powder.

I then stamped the banner from the Big, the Bold and Extras in light gray ink before stamping the birthday sentiment in green ink.  Once all the images were dry, I fussy cut them out.  The happy sentiment was die cut from mint CS and white CS using the Big, the Bold and the Happy Cutaways.  The die cuts were adhered together, then covered with stickles.  While the die cut was drying, I fiddled with the arrangement of my images, then secured everything with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with clear gems.

Well, that wraps it up for me today, thanks for stopping by! :)
