Sweet Springtime Love

Hello, treasured friends! I am unexpectedly away but will be back soon to sprinkle love all over your beautiful blogs! I'm posting today on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog with a sweet springtime-inspired card. Like many, I am eager for the beauty of spring after an atypical winter. Thankfully gorgeous Wild Orchid Crafts flowers bloom all year long.♥︎
The sweetness of spring guided my design, where animal friends frolic amongst the stunning WOC goodies.♥︎ This was made for another cancer warrior who needs to be surrounded by pure sweetness! I used several Wycinanka chippies, all of which have been covered in crackle paste. The tiny birdies are from Memory Box dies, while the wavy border is from Marianne Design.
I am thoroughly in love with mini-sweetheart blossoms... they couldn't be more precious! I nestled in a few sunshiny yellow ones for little sunbeams. The butterfly resting atop the swirly Easter egg chippie is from Sue Wilson. Gorgeous and whimsical WOC trims are layered and divided with a beautiful flat-back pearl string.
Even the foliage is sweetened with pink... I can't seem to stop using these darling colorful leaves.♥︎ It's frigid outside, but spring is in full force all over my craft desk. :) The gorgeous papers are from LemonCraft's Just Love Me collection.♥︎

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a lovely day!♥︎
