Come on Spring!

Happy Monday to you all. While the sun did shine yesterday, it was still chilly outside. I want Spring to be here in FULL! I can't really get into spring cleaning mode when it's still cold...and I need to get crackin' on some indoor paint jobs.

I love Beautiful Blooms. It's such a classic set that can be used in many ways. I paired it here with a sentiment from Borders &  Corners: oval. After embossing a nestie, I masked it with eclipse tape and stamped the flowers with orange zest and raspberry fizz before adding some dotted leaves with Giverny Green (I think it's a better match than New Leaf). No ribbon, can you believe it? *grin*

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a creative day!

Love the embossed nestie frame Dana! And those blooms are so fun and cheerful, great colours! I too wish Spring would just get here properly. We've had a couple of nice days recently though, almost the right weather to play on the swings!!

Amazing! Love the way you framed it!
And I hear you about Spring...one day it was 85 here and 2 days later it snowed again....sigh...

Dana, love the masking you did here. I'm glad I read your description because I thought, "How did she do that?!" The bright spring colors are just what's needed in these rainy California days. :) Nice!

Gorgeous Dana! I love those pretty orange flowers... I have to look away now- because shockingly enough I do not own that set.

Too many things to say about this, so I will just say that I love it!! Seriously, I don't know where to begin!! I would totally frame this and hang it on my wall, if you'd be so inclined to send it me...
