Spring Has Sprung

The weather here has been going back and forth between nice and sunny, to rainy, to sunny but chilly!  Spring is definitely here with the sounds of the birds and with how it's lighter in the mornings.  I thought the colors in these papers were perfect for this kind of weather. . .a little bright and "sunny", but a little dark or muted and "cloudy".  All of these papers are from the Easter Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions.  The stamps are from the Favorite Peeps set.  I stamped the flower three times, colored them and then cut them out.  They are attached to the sentiment panel using dimensional adhesive.  I stuck a couple of buttons in between them to add a little interest.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out using the Labels Ten Nestabilities.  I added a butterfly rub-on to the patterned paper.  Finally I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen along the left side. 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you're having a "Springy" day!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Favorite Peeps (Taylored Expressions); Ink-Spanish Olive (VersaMagic), Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Paper- Easter Key Ingredients (Taylored Expressions); Accessories- ribbon, buttons from Key Ingredients (Taylored Expressions), Copic markers, Labels Ten Nestabilities (Spellbinders), white gel pen, rub-ons (SEI);  Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
