This is my card for this week’s CC466. Becky is our hostess and she has chosen a bright, springy color combo with wild wasabi, strawberry slush and daffodil delight. For dessert she wants us to create a floral card.
I decided to go with a spring card and as I type this description we are in the middle of another snowstorm that is dropping about 4” of snow overnight.
My image is the Great Impressions Stamp “welcome spring”. I paper pieced the eggs and tulips. Added some grass that was cut with an MFT die and some clouds from an A-muse stamp and fussy cut those.
My bg dsp is from SU’s “attic boutique” collection. The strawberry slush dsp is from SU’s “quatrefancy specialty” collection. Used the fancy fan ef on my strawberry panel and cut my flag with an MFT die with more of the “attic boutique” dsp.
My pennant trim border is a Verve die and the butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Designs die. The cotton lace is from May Arts.
The layout is an old MojoMonday sketch #250. That’s my card for today.
Hope you can play along this week, You may be our next CC fave of the week and your card will be featured on our Pinterest Board.

What a happy, fun card, Mary! I love your layout and paper piecing. I think that you manged to find every paper & EF with that design - your eye for detail floors me. Thanks for your inspiration this week and every week. Stay warm - I think that better weather is on the way!
My time is not mine to have, but mine to share

Adorable Easter card, Mary which would bring joy to anyone, but has a sweet feminine feeling with the delicate patterns of the DP in the bg, airy die cut butterfly, and the touch of lace. Your main panel is delightful.
