Is It Spring Yet?

Oh, I wish it was already Spring!  Since we're not there just yet and still have chilly weather I thought this would at least remind you of what's ahead! 

We're starting another challenge today over at Tuesday Throwdown and would love for you to play along for your chance to win a wonderful prize from our sponsor Diane's Daydream Design.  Our theme this time is to use your favorite embellishment. 

I used a pre-colored image from Diane's Daydream Design, added the birthday wishes sentiment, and used an embossing folder from SU.  As far as my favorite embellishment - hard to say...... There are just so many different ways to embellish a card these days but since I do like ribbon and also have tons of it, decided I'd use some on this card.

Thanks for stopping by.......and be sure and check out all the inspiration from the DT and enter the challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown.

What a lovely card. I always forget about using that sweet embossing folder. I need to drag it out because it just is so ideal especially for making spring type cards. You always do such a fantastic job with your bows and ribbons. You are having chilly weather, well do you know what chilly really is? LOL Our high temp. today is 19° and going down every day this week and Thursday the temp. will be 0° with wind chill factors of -25°. Now that is chilly. I'm not leaving the house all week. Have a good day.

This might be one of the prettiest cards you've ever made! I love that tuplip ef, and how you layered that beautifully colored floral image on top with some pretty yellow ribbon! It's definitely a breath of spring! (I say this as I look out my window to a snow-covered white ground) lol
