Saturday in the Seventies
Now, I'm not talking about the decade, but the temperature! It was a lovely day and I walked around and saw evidence of new growth on many of the trees and plants. Wildflowers are beginning to peek out too, along the roadways. I've been having sinus problems so these are probably the culprits, but I'm still so glad to see spring coming!
Couldn't let the day pass without making a card, so I decided to do one for an Embellish Magazine challenge to use fabric and the colors Red, Kraft, Blue and Green. The apples on the white and blue striped material is the fabric, which I adhered to a piece of cardstock and cut out with a nestability. I used Cuttlebug's Candy Cane Stripes embossing foldervto emboss the kraft paper. All papers and ink are Stampin' Up (Kraft, Night of Navy, Real Red and Garden Green)
A navy ribbon was used along the side with tiny pearls. Larger pearls were used in the corners, colored blue and green with Bic Markers.
Hope you had a wonderful day too!
