Think Spring!


Digi image and sentiment:  From the Heart Stamps 'Hamlet PigWit Think Spring'.  Cardstock:  SU Wild Wasabi and gray, Neenah white, K& Co 'Sweet Nectar', Bo Bunny 'Prairie Chic'.  Ink:  Copics.
Aren't we all dreaming of Spring? Mr. Hamlet is no different -- this digi set also comes with a field of flowers and butterflies.  I received the complete set FREE for being part of the FTHS monthly progressive challenge.  Read HERE for details on how to join the fun!

Inspiration for this card came from the fun I {heart} sketches #56
An added twist  was to add real or faux stitching.  This detail may have been the most time consuming part of the cardmaking process since I don't have round stitching templates.  My solution was to use a slightly larger spellbinders circle die and pierce along the edge.  Not perfect and I had to be sure not to slice my fingers, but not bad, right??
