Is it Spring yet??

Actually where I live its more like summer!! Its already been 99 degrees here
 in the desert. We  had a bit of a cooling trend the past few days and it has 
dropped back down into the 80's.
 So needless to say everything in our area is green and in full bloom.

So all that to say the
 Green is always part of spring so I started with the green dotted dp. I combined 
it with a pink stripe, stitched them on and zig zagged down the center. A bit of 
distressing around the edges after I stitched them down.A Spellbinder border die
was used for the bottom strip. The image is one of the 
new April Releases Gardenias. After coloring the flower I cut it out with a 
Spellbinder die letting the leaves lap over. The pink Scalloped Square 
is also cut with  a Spellbinder die . I tied a piece of dyed ribbon onto the corner and 
added some cheese cloth to the back before attaching the image with foam dots.
                 Spring Colors can be used all different ways
so come on over and join us this week.
 My teamies have lots of GREAT examples for you!

Gorgeous card and I love the stitching and the use of the cheese cloth! SO lovely.
Yikes! It's already hot and yes, I think you must have missed spring all together. Hope you get a little bit cooler weather soon.
