Visions of Spring

From the first day that I received my Occassions Mini in the mail, I have wanted to recreate this card. My card is a CASE of the card on the front cover. I fell in love with the bright colors and of course, this stamp set: Nature Walk.

I had to be patient, as I knew I wouldn't be ordering these goodies until the end of February. Yes, I do plan ;) So, when I finally got to play with them this week, this is the first card I made.

If you are currently comparing my card to the SU card, you may see some differences. I kept the Melon Mambo, but swapped out Pear Pizzazz for the Orange/Pink they used. I switched up the First Edition DSP and alternated it with my torn cardstock at the bottom. My favorite addition...the Yellow Tulle that I added to the card. I would have never even thought of it, but this is one of the few Yellow ribbons that I have and I thought the shear look would be perfect. I think it was the final detail to bring everything together.

This card just yells spring to me and I absolutely love it! I hope you do too ;)
