Spring! Where art thou?

I'm so tired of this snow! When will spring arrive? I'm ready for birds chirping, crocuses blooming and, mud!

This egg stamp is from Oxford Impressions. I love how speckled it is, and tried to keep that look on the card. Robin's eggs are blue, but not so much speckled...oh well.

Sentiment is also from Oxford Impressions. Isn't it great? *sigh* I stamped it with StazOn onto a clear sheet that PTI stamps come on! Then I brushed some metallic, pearlized paint on the back to make it pop out a bit, cut it out, and used my slot punch to thread the lemon tart ribbon through.
The card base was stamped with a wheel from SU, and I repeatedly stamped an image from PTI's anniversary set from last year onto the main panel to make a background and highlighted with a white gel pen. I'm pleased with it!
Paper: Avocado, Spring mist, spring rain, lemon tart (PTI)
Stamps: Egg and sentiment (Oxford Impressions), vine (SU), small cross-type flower (PTI)
Ink: Spring Mist, Avocado, Spring rain, slate grey, black Stazon
Accessories: Lemon tart ribbon, blue button, hemp twine, white gel pen
Thanks for stopping by, have a GREAT day!
