FOSTV Challenge-Thank You

Welcome this Monday morning. My day is probably going to be full of rain but I hope my card looks like a day of sunshine. I love this crocus (and can't wait to see them pop out of the ground) from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company stamp set called Winter Crocus. This card was made for the Friends of Speedy TV challenge #2 to make a 'thank you' card over at Home of Speedy TV.  Hope you'll come along and join us.

Yes, my Cheery Lynn Designs  Polynesian Sails Oval is a new Christmas present and I really love the lacy look it has. My butterfly, from the same company, is the Exotic Butterfly (small). The crocus is colored with Copics and I sponged with Memento Summer Sky while still in the die. It is cut out with the Spellbinders scallop rectangle die. Added my thank you sentiment (computer generated) using the Spellbinders nested pennants die and a piece of the Cheery Lynn fanciful flourish is peeking out behind it. I added a few pearls and it is all finished.

The coral colors of this card are so spring-like and just gorgeous! The dies are amazing and I love how you paired them for this great image! It hardly seems like winter yet, but I too look forward to seeing that first crocus popping from the soil in spring!
