welcome spring

This tall grass stamp was from an Impress Rubber Stamps order that arrived last week. I used some $1 punches from Mike's to turn 'em into flowers. It may not show very well from the photo but there's a dragonfly hovering above the flowers made from vellum with Dazzling Diamonds on its wings and Snowflake Glimmer Mist on its body.

It's in celebration of Spring for Maria Bell's recent sketch and paper crafters {Anonymous}'s Springy challenges. I have the My Sentiments Exactly's Old World font as a stamp set but it was too large for the card, so the "spring" text is printed from my PC - it looks like the same font but is called Parchment. It seems that lately I'm combining digital w stamped techniques more often, usually printing the inside sentiment and stamping the card front.

stamps: Savvy Stamps' tall grass, SU's warm words; paper: SU's Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, and Old Olive cardstocks, The Paper Co's vellum, unknown white cardstock; ink: Versamark, StazOn's Jet Black, SU's Old Olive; accessories: polka dot organdy ribbon; technique: stamped off tall grasses stamp
