SSC198 and LNS Challenge Inspired By Nature

Spring has sprung, everyone! In Arizona, there are flowers all year long, so it's easy to take them for granted. In the midwest, where I grew up, I remember how special it was when the first daffodils and crocus plants began to bloom. There was always a decent chance it was going to snow on them, but it still was a sign that spring was on it's way. So this is my card to commemorate the green grass and flowers that announce spring is on it's way.

My sketch came from Stamping 411. They always have great sketches to play with when you're looking to make a great card! Because of the flowers, it also meets the LNS Challenge for this week.

Happy Stamping!

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:
Inspired By Nature and All Holidays Stamp Sets
Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and Always Artichoke Classic Ink Pads
Whisper White, Rose Red, and Old Olive Card Stock
Scallop Trim Border Punch
5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon
Antique Brads

In MN, the daffodils are peeking through but not blooming yet. They are calling for snow tomorrow night. Ugh! It's a good thing I have your pretty card to look at. It's a breath of Spring air.
