thanks A BUNCH!

Hi, everyone!

Spring is definitely in the air here in Central Ohio. Seemed like a perfect time to make a flowery, spring-y card.  :)

Stampin' Up! party-basics; Distress Ink weathered wood; Recollections black
Hero Arts sentiment, stamped in StazOn jet black; inking in DI black soot, applied with Ranger blending tool
EK, SU, and Marvy flower punches: SU leaf Sizzlit; Paper Smooches wave die
Really Reasonable Ribbon ribbon; SU twine and adhesive gems; stash button
adhesive: Scotch ATG; Zots glue dots; Zig 2-way pen; Ranger multi medium matte; Recollections foam squares

My card was inspired by a pleat fold that Penny used on a card over at Words 2 Craft By. She credited the technique to Miss Linda. Honestly, this is a little busier -- and a tad more multi media -- than my typical cards. But, I really do like the way it turned out. Maybe there's hope for me yet. LOL

I'm linking this card up to the current Simon Says Stamps Flowers Challenge, the Shopping Our Stash April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge, and the Eureka Stamps April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge.

Parting Thoughts

Speaking of challenges, a new Words 2 Craft By challenge went live yesterday, the current Cards in Envy challenge is open until Sunday, there is another week to play along at Send a Smile 4 Kids, and there is also a week left in the Jingle Belles interactive card challenge.

See  you tomorrow over at Jingle Belles. Until then, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
