For our Spring Theme this month, I created a card for our group leader, Linda Weber, who had some eye surgery. It's from all of us at Scrapbook Place. We wish her well, a speedy recovery!

Occasionally, I like to CASE cards. I wanted something extra nice for Linda. So, this card is based on a design by Carla Peicheff. It was published in A Card A Day, A LeisureArts Publication.

Designed by Allie Gower for Scrapbook Place

Carolyn's Fresh Breath of Spring

What a breath of Fresh air to join in this Challenge! What does Spring mean to you...Flowers Blooming? Children Playing? Gardening? Easter? Spring Break? St Patricks Day? just playing outside? Well at Squiggle Fly they wanted us to show them some bright and beautiful springtime cheer items and I'm sharing mine with you using a Cheryl Alger digi and a great sketch from Mojo Monday Sketches  The key with this card is layers, layers, layers.

This large card starts with green cardstock, has 5 panels of spring striped/flowered paper under a pink/green plaid paper from DAISYD's offset onto pink cardstock.  I tied a soft pink satin ribbon on the end of that then elevated an embossed and glittered swirly flower cardstock from DAISYD's on top of the plaid. Then the icing on on the top is the elevated digi colored with copics and baby pearls to look like raindrops.  The inside is finished with the striped paper and a large label die cut for personal sentiments.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Squiggle Fly Challenge #8--Spring with ribbon

I hope you will still remember that there is a Leap Day Blog Hop at Scrapbook Place with the hosts SBP giving blog candy away as well as some of the ladies participating-just click the link above and join in the fun!  Be sure to leave some love!
