Springtime Sprig

Hello all!  Thank you SO much for the wonderful comments about me joining the Seize The Sketch design team! I can't wait to begin.  =)

It's been ages since I used Tres Chic background stamp from Stampin' Up!  I let it drift off the edges so I could enter Addicted To CAS's "Off The Edge" challenge.


This Spellbinders Fantastic Flourish One die reminds me of a sprig of mistletoe at Christmastime.  With these colors, and some amethyst gems, I think of it as mistletoe for spring!  "Oh, hubby, where ARE you?..."


The high school prom is this Friday evening, and my 15 YO is so excited.  I already showed you her dress, and I'll make sure to get pictures of her all dolled-up on Prom Night.  =)

Have a great weekend!

I remember how she looked in the dress and I could see some of her hair. I say go with them to the prom. Locking her in the bedroom would be too cruel..... ;-) The card is lovely! I really like the colors, die cut, and the added rhinestones too!

Colleen this card took my breath away. The backgorund stamp is perfect for an elegant card and I love that "mistletoe" you used. Perfect with the amethyst gems. Wow!
