Little Red Wagon Challenge #284 ~ Spring is in the Air!!!

Good Morning!  Just typing "SPRING IS IN THE AIR!" brings a smile to my face.  I like Winter.  I like Fall.  Summer is just okay as I don't really enjoy the heat.  But Spring.....yes, the best time of the year.  Animals come out of hibernation.  Birds return.  And flowers and trees are budding and blooming.  Which also brings about allergies but that's a whole different post...hee!!hee!!

"SPRING IS IN THE AIR!" at Little Red Wagon this week with our hostess Collette wanting to see a floral theme on your project.  So dig out your floral papers, your floral die cuts, your floral stamps and show us what you can do with them.

I used a stamp/die set I had in my stash and had not used before.  It was tricky getting the hang of it at first (you'd have thunk this was my first time cutting out dies if you saw my first attempt) but I like how the flowers are layered over the leaves.  I used coloured card stock for the background of the flowers as white was just too stark.

Card Stock ~ Recollections
Patterned Paper ~ Simple Stories Enchanted
Dies ~ Spellbinders Shapabilities Flower Stamp/Die Set
~ Spellbinders Shapabilities Foliage
~ Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals
~ Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Ovals (LG)
Inks ~ Studio G
~ Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
 ~ Tim Holtz Mowed Lawn Distress Ink
Sentiment ~ CARDZ TV Think Spring
Simple Stories Enchanted Enamel Dots
Ribbon ~ Celebrate It

So let's welcome Spring in style this week.  Join us at Little Red Wagon, check out what the other girlfriends have created and link up your project.  Have a wonderful Wednesday.
