Mod Squad Challenge Thinking of Spring 2.0

Happy Saturday!

Today's card is for the Mod Squad Thinking of Spring 2.0. I know everyone is wishing for Spring to hurry up and begin so that warmer temperatures can finally break the brutal cold of this Winter. For the Mod Squad crew this couldn't be any truer, they want it so bad that they're hosting a second Thinking of Spring challenge, LOL! I guess they're hoping that if everyone just puts on their thinking caps (or creative caps) and visualize Spring it will happen. Something like the story of the Little Engine that Could --if we all say it together --well you know the rest. I'm taking advantage of this second chance because I made a card for a StampTV challenge (Double Border) with a Spring theme with the intention of entering it in both challenges, but I forgot to check the deadline so I was a day late. Oh well, as the grand kids might say, my bad, LOL!

Here's my first card for this challenge. The background is sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. The flowers are from Gina K's Celebrate the Season stamp set, colored with Spectrum Noir markers and added a small rhinestone in the center -just the right touch of bling. The yellow gingham ribbon with a double bow says Spring is here!   The card base is Gina K's Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight White, layered with Lemon Drop cardstock and the sentiment is from her Happy Birthday duo.

For my second card I used Spellbinder's Cherry Blossoms die, sponged with Tim Holtz Forest Moss (branches) and Spun Sugar (flowers), added a touch of yellow in the center and adhered it to Echo Parks's pattern paper from the Here & Now Collection by Lori Whitlock. The butterflies are from Stately Flowers 7 set stamped in Gina K's Kraft ink and colored with Copics. The sentiment is from Autumn Leaves stamped in Memento Black and cut using Spellbinders Floral Ovals. The card base is Gina K's Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight layered with Fresh Asparagus.

This all for me today, thanks for stopping by. Hugz and Blessings.
