Springtime Florals ....

Only 9 days until spring here in Melbourne and we had some glorious weekend weather, and another gorgeous soon to be spring day today. I went for a walk around Lilydale Lake after school drop off and am so glad I did as I now I feel happy and full of energy. It was such a perfect morning for a walk.

This new Flirtacious specialty DSP from the Stampin' Up! 2011/2012 Idea Book and Catalogue also makes me think of spring. I love the pretty floral patterns and it has the most amazing intricate laser cut sheets (2 of them) included in the 12 sheets (I cut one of these doileys from that sheet). It's such a pretty paper. I made this card for a special friend who has had a rough few weeks health wise.

The other thing you will notice on this card is that I have used one of the new In-Colours for 2011/2012, called Wisteria Wonder. It's a lovely paler purple which works great as a lighter tone with Concord Crush and Elegant Eggplant. It's one of the matching colours with this DSP (and there's also a gorgeous matching stamp set!), and looks great with the pinks as well. Perfect or spring don't you think?

Hope you have a sunny day today too. Even if it's raining in your part of the world, I hope it's sunny in spirit!

Absolutely PERFECT for spring Claire! I wasn't sure about the laser cut sheets, but I really like how you have cut a piece off and used it on it's own. Might have to rethink getting this DSP now - goes easy on my wallet please!

This is such a pretty card Clare, l love all the new goodies coming our way and you have used them together so beautifully.
It is lovely having this gorgeous spring weather already, certainly makes you feel so much more alive.

I'm soooo blessed to have received this in my mailbox today! Lifted my spiritis way more than my weekly visits to the chiro. Thanks Claire! xo

I am so casing this one Claire. This is stunning xox
