Celebrate Spring!

I made some cards earlier this week for Easter and I just had to get them finished so that my special peeps can get them on time. So I somewhat cheated. I went to Michael's and I just love their $1 bin. I found these great Laura Ashley cards and this is what I came up with:

Really simple, I hand wrote "celebrate" with my green glaze pen from Sakura on some white cardstock. I cut out a little flag and wrapped it around a toothpick. I stamped the word "spring!" on white cardstock again and I used my scallop punch for the background. I used the "apron lace" border punch on some green cardstock and cut a strip of yellow cardstock to layer over it. To finish the card I added a flower and a button. I didn't want to post this card earlier because I didn't want to spoil it for them before they even received it. If they do read my blog beforehand...oops, but it looks better in person. Happy Easter everyone!!
