Spring is around the corner!

Alright, so we aren't quite at Spring yet.  I can hope though can't I?  I made this flower card for a My Pink Stamper Challenge.  I think with all the snow that they have gotten in OK they are ready for an early Spring.  Let's hope the ground hogs prediction is correct.

I made this flower card with the help of my wonderful Gypsy again.  I love that I can do so much more with the Expression and can design my own creations with it. 

The size for the scalloped card base is 4.25"  The layer on top of that is 4.25", I used my Gypsy to hid the interior layer.  The next layer is just the reverse of the previous layer.  These flowers were from the Accent Essentials cart.  The next flowers were cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cart.  First at 4" and the same flower cut twice at 3" each.  The center of the flower is from Create a Critter.  I again used my gypsy to turn of the center.  These were cut at 1.5" and 1.25".  To finish it off I used a button and sewed it to the paper with some cross stitch floss.  I also used my bone folder to slightly curl the petals. 

I can't wait to send this to someone, but meanwhile I will enjoy looking at in on my shelf. 
Here's to an early Spring!
