Welcome to the Neighborhood

Hi Peeps!

Are you ready for something bright and cheerful with a heavy dose of Spring? I sure am! I'm so over Winter and ready for warmer temps and a view out my front window of something other than snow. Of course that might be asking for a lot this week so instead I concentrated on making my very own slice of Spring... on a card!

I used the cupcake house stamp from the newly released Cozy Cottages set from Taylored Expressions. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Choice Snow White cardstock and colored with PrismaColor pencils and then trimmed. I added a touch of Glossy Accents to the Cherry and hearts and dusted with Crystal Fine glitter. I also dabbed a bit of the Glossy Accents on the tiny little window, but no glitter.

I then created a scenic summer background for the house using My Mind's Eye designer paper and a bit of green wool-blend felt. I cut the felt with pinking scissors and stitched in place with my sewing machine. The bottom was a little messy so I covered it up with a length of ruffled suede ribbon, a button and a bit of twine.

So what do you think? Did I bring Spring or what with this card? :)
