Finally! Spring has arrived on a beautiful day here in North Carolina. We planted the first 20 of our over gladiolus bulbs on St. Patrick's Day. Our cannas are already peeking out of the ground as well as some peonies Lenny transplated from my Mother's garden. (Lenny just warned me their is a frost warning for tonight so we better cover these little shoots up.) I love flowers I can cut and bring indoors.
With spring, not only do we get green grass and blossoms, we get many occasions to celebrate. Spring often brings weddings and graduations. I'm planning to demo this card at a workshop tomorrow. I borrowed the design from the Sale-a-bration catalog. Their version had an accordion flower but I wanted a stamped one. I've used the Petal Pizzazz set for the flower and stem. The graduated color is achieved with Stampin' Pastel. Quick and very effective.
To my dear friends, Karen and Jimmy, Happy Anniversary and a Happy Spring to all!
