Thank you for being so thoughtful!

So after making THIS card the other day with this fabulous patterned paper, I had scraps left that just kept calling to me to be used up! See? The hoarding thing? Yeah...I'm workin' on it! Getting better already!

I am totally loving these colors! So warm and springy! After repeatedly asking for snow...yes I am sorry...I really wanted it and now I don't anymore...I promise...well, now I am asking for spring! So if nothing else...my card is showing a little sun today! (Although it was close to 70 here in Kansas yesterday! Talk about serious spring fever now!) OK sorry...back to the card...

I have had a couple emails asking about this paper and you know I am terrible at supply lists! All I know is it was on clearance. So I had to buy it. But I have an email out so I will let you know when I find the name! It is gorgeous! Double sided and has lots of patterns on one piece! I so wish I would have bought more!

OK so I am beginning to ramble! Going to stop now! Have a good day! :)  Except I should also tell you about my Lemon Tart flower!  I made that from a flower svg file on my computer and cut it out with the Cricut!  I took 2 flowers and rounded each petal out with this tool thing I have that has a round end...sorry I have no idea what it is....and I used a little mouse pad underneath that so it gave each petal lots of dimension!  Does that make sense?  Clear as mud?  Rambling again...bye!

Gorgeous Laurie! And good for you for working on the hoard! I have one too but I've not been as good about using it. Love that flower!

Keva said...

Ooh, extra pretty! I love the paper and the colors are divine. Those flowers are just adorable. I love the dimension added.

Tejal said...

Beautiful paper...let me know what line is it when you find it!
And the round thingy to round the petals..could that be an embossing stylus? just helping you remember! :D
I'm no good at those things either!

I thought part of being a chick was to change our mind all the time :) You just wanted snow for a nice photo, a snowman and hot cocoa but then you are good with spring right .... ME TOO!!! Love the card and that paper just screams spring is coming ..... the green is for all the leaves and I have orange tiger lilies and yellow tulips ..... PERFECT colors as far as I am concerned. I do love that flower!!!

Kathy said...

Wow! Awesome card and yes it makes me long for Spring! Very pretty paper and I sure wish you'd tell us what that tool is for making the fab flower. Love it!

Glittered Paws said...

Very nice - and you are the bomb at making all those patterns work!!! SPRING - dreams of SPRING - I am so ready.

Lynn said...

Laurie, I love that you covered the entire card with dsp. This is definitely a happy card!

Christina said...

Your flower is so pretty and springy! If only these warm colors could melt the 2 feet of snow still on my deck. {sigh}

Lovely card! I think the paper might be from Scenic Route (?).

Laurel said...

Beautiful! the paper is Scenic Route.

Julie Shaskin said...

Such a beauty! As soon as I saw your card I had to run to my scraproom and check my paper stash 'cause I knew I had it! The paper is Scenic Route-the Ashville Line.

Dana said...

very pretty! Love those PPs!

Michelle said...

That is beautiful! It's been foggy and gloomy her in Sacramento so those colors are really making me yearn for spring. I think Tejal is right. It sounds like you used a embossing stylus. Fantastic card as always.

Lindsay said...

This is so cheery Laurie! I love the layout and that delightful flower!

Lee Anne said...

One of my goals this year is to use more patterned paper too. I've done pretty well with the self imposed challenge, but now I want your paper. This card is beautiful.

Clare said...

SO pretty and bright and fun and summery - I LOVE it! And that flower is just gorgeous!

Eva said...

LOVE the paper and your flower...and of course how you put it all together!

Sue Kohler said...

Love how you have used this paper Laurie, you have inspired me to pull out my scraps and put them on the desk to use them again!! they are scenic route, Ashville, the one with the big flowers is south market street, not sure on the others, have cut the names off!! hope this helps :)

Jill W. said...

This is so happy and warm...not like the eight degrees it is here in Metro Detroit this morning! I love your "pearl placemnet" so much! What label die is that?

Amy said...

Definitely makes me want spring! Considering we are set to get 10-12 inches in Topeka tonight and tomorrow. Ughh. Back to the beauty, LOVE the yellow pearls and that die!

Cristina said...

What a bright, cheery card. You make it look so easy!!

Lisa Petrella said...

This is SO PRETTY and I definitely LOVE the spring color palette---so sunny and cheerful!!! Gorgeous flower, too!!!

Heidi said...

I really like the colors, and the ribbon - that is a perfect coordinate to the paper. Love it. :)

Laura Isham said...

So, so pretty! I am in love with that flower. Your card makes me smile!

Debby said...

Oh this is such a happy card - you can't help but feel good looking at it!

Jen Carter said...

This paper is really pretty! I love how you combined the patterns and added the flower to accent it! That green button is perfect too, such a "soft" look to it (if that makes sense, lol!!).

kasia c. said...

Laurie, this is gorgeous! very spring-y. :)
That sentiment fits so perfectly on the mat with those lovely pearls and stunning flower.
