Papertrey February Blog Hop

It's time again for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. This month's theme was anything to do with Spring. Like most of you in this hemisphere, I just can't wait for winter to be over. To me, Spring is epitomized by the budding of new leaves and blossoms on the trees, and that was what inspired this card. I love the soft colors. And yes, I did use pink and brown again, but I did throw in some green this time!

For further inspiration, I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch. Definitely more layers that I am accustomed to using, but totally delightful. And if some of the layers look just slightly askew to you, let's blame it on the angle of the camera, shall we?

I hope this card invokes the promise of Spring for all of you!

What I used:
Stamps: PTI Out on a Limb
Ink: Burnt Umber, Sweet Blush, Spring Moss
Paper: PTI White, Sweet Blush, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, various PTI DP
Other: Fiskars Threading Water border punch, SU circle punches, pink rhinestones

Well your budding and blossoming branch totally made ME think of spring too, so you must have hit the nail on the head! A lot of layers, but you pulled it off wonderfully.
