This card reminds me of spring with all the different pastel colors.

I was inspired by Michelle Wooderson when doing the tree. I love visiting her blog, she does some amazing work.

I used the largest scallopped long nestabilities to make the card base from spring rain cardstock. I had to run it thru my Cuttlebug a few times to make sure it cut all the way thru both layers of cardstock. I matted my focal image onto lemon tart cardstock where I stamped a scallopped image and dots from Beyond Basic Borders stamp set. I stamped the dots using a glue pad and added some lavender glitter.

The tree image is from Beyond Basic Borders stamped in spring moss. For the pastel dots on the tree I used the circle from Around and About stamp set and accented them with a little sparkled by using a clear glitter pen from Spica.

Stamps: Beyond Basic Borders, Around and About
Ink: spring moss, sweet blush, lavender moon, lemon tart, aqua mist and true black
Paper: spring rain, lemon tart and select stampers white
Other: nestabilities, glitter, ribbon, corner rounder punch
Finished Size: 3" x 6 1/4"
