Celebrate Spring!

The calendar says it is spring, but the thermometer was 27 degrees this morning. My Mom always said that patience is a virtue. In honor of our long wait, I completed this Easter Card for the SCS Clean and Simple Challenge.

The challenge was to complete a CAS card using punches. I punched the yellow square and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the swiss dot embossing folder. I used two other punches for the smaller squares and used a swirl punch for the flourishes. I used my Nesties for the scalloped ovals and my Enveloper for the scoring, added a few drops of Stickles to the stamped image and before I knew it, the card was done!

Carly the Cat is sitting next to me meowing which means it's time to feed her. I am the "Keeper of the can opener" you know... :o) For Now, Happy Crafting!
