spring is in the {AIR!} at HSS Challenge 59

Hello there bloggie friends!  I'm happy to say I have gotten over my little sick spell and I am finally back to normal - YAY!  It's so not fun being sick.  AND, I've also discovered that it's definitely much more fun to craft when you're in good spirits!  So, with that in mind, how about we take a peek at this week's challenge over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, shall we?  You got a peek at my card above, now let me show you this week's inspiration photo:
Doesn't this collage just conjure up all things SPRING and pretty?  I think so!  It's chock full of happy and bright images of this beautiful season. {Plus - can I get a woot woot for the LONGER DAYS?!} As you can probably gather, I got some of my card inspiration from the eggs and the green and yellows found throughout the photos.  Here's a look at my full card:
What do you think?  Hope you like it!  I used the pretty decorative eggs from the Easter Blossoms stamp set, which I am really growing fond of!  The eggs look lovely and delicate in these soft pastel colors.  I added just the teeniest of embellies - the tiny pearls from the Basic Pearls pack.  So sweet!  And, my new fave stamp set is the Four Frames stamp set, which I'm previewing here...it's a set of frames that coordinate with the decorative labels punch.  Yummy!  If you're a fan of the decorative label punch, then I think you'll absolutely LOVE it :)  Here's the recipe for you:
{Springtime Eggcitement}
*Stamp Sets: Easter Blossom, Four Frames
*Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
*Inks: Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight
*Accessories: Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Decorative Label Punch, Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon, Basic Pearls, Itty Bitty Punches, Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die, Stampin'Dimensionals
Now that you got your dose of spring, I hope you'll come and play along with us.  Pop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments to get some more inspiration from the DT and get your creative juices flowing!  I really do love seeing all the submissions...hope yours is one of them :)

Have a fabbie day, dear friends.  I'll catch you guys later!
