Season Of Friendship & Picnic Parade



It sure is like spring here today! It was so beautiful walking for hours, taking in the beauty of the Cascade mountains in the distance and the cherry blossom trees just coming in to bloom. Sunshine and warm temperatures, what a gorgeous day!
I took my inspiration for today's card from the Lark website with this lovely Spring print shown in the first picture.
Season Of Friendship on River Rock cardstock with Whisper White and Banana. Tree was stamped with Creamy Caramel craft ink, flowers and leaves with the old retired SU chalk inks by Colorbox. Also used Picnic Parade for forest creatures. Three flower punch with subtles beads for centers. To curve up the petals of these flowers, put them on your foam piercing mat and press down in the very center of each flower with your Empressor stylus. This forms a perfect little cup shaped flower that is so adorable! I added a bit of Dazzling Diamonds in among the beads for additional sparkle.
