spring thanks

A card for the Make my Monday challenge,  which this week is for a spring card for Mothers day or a thank you. As you can see, I  chose the thank you option.
All the supplies apart from the scallop card base are Stampin up this time. The torn strip of white card was stamped randomly with all the leaf stamps from the French foliage set, as well as the small script stamp from the same set, all in pear pizazz ink, which I thought was a nice springlike green. The flowers are from the Greenhouse garden set in baja breeze and black inks - I had to make a stamp positioner using acrylic blocks to get anything like a decent image with this two-stamp- one-image set. I think this set could be quite addictive once I get better at using it.............the leaves were again from the French foliage set, this time stamped in old olive ink  cut out and glued under the flowers, which are on dimensionals. the top leaf isn't quite at the intended angle, I caught it on the dimensional pad under the flower , and couldn't move it.
Greeting from an old SAB set So happy for you (but new to me since I won it in a raffle)


  1. Oh, this is AMAZING!!! LOVE the CAS style of it--the colors are gorgeous! Thanks for joining us at MMM! :)

  2. Greenhouse Garden is one of my favourite SU stamp sets and you've made a very pretty card by combining it with the foliage ones (another favourite) - I have many actually!! Pretty spring colours

  3. Gorgeous card ....Thank you for entering the Make My Monday challenge this week! Suzanne :)

  4. The texture of those stamped leaves is lovely & I like the multiple stamping of your background - random stamping is so effective & I love the loose effect of it. The aqua of your flowers is a lovely contrast with the green.
