Bring on Springtime!

Today we are finally experiencing the first traces of Spring (I hope!).  The sun is shining and the temperatures are in the upper 40s.  This is a much appreciated break from all the cold.  To celebrate the warmer weather, my husband and I went to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum for a walk and some lunch in their lovely tea room. The view is just splendid on a day like today.  I look forward to going back when the snow is all gone and buds start appearing all around us.

To celebrate this wonderful day, I am sharing a floral card I made for a co-worker to give his wife for her birthday. He wanted a romantic feeling card, with shades of blues and brown.  I decided to use a lovely set by Gina K Designs as I love the flower stamp which I was able to stamp repeatedly to get this pattern and the sentiment is very sweet I think.

I added a doily to give it some texture and it was colored with Weathered Wood Distress Ink to add some distressing and color to it.

Wishing you a wonderful day filled with beauty!
