Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying this time of the year. Spring is blooming out here, although the weather is a bit on the cool, breezy side but I love it this way. The trees look so beautiful with the leaves, as well as flowers on some, just starting to emerge. We had a wonderful Easter weekend spent with family. I tackled a good bit of spring housecleaning also.
Today, I have a card and altered container to share. The papers used are from Graphic 45. I love their sweet collections.
The beautiful larger flowers are from Recollections. The smaller flowers as well as the Graphic 45 papers were given to me by a sweet blogging friend, Ellen Kristiansen. The gold butterfly is from Martha Stewart.
Here is a view of the top of the container. It was very simple to put together. I just used the papers from A Secret Garden to cover it, glued pearls and lace around it, and then topped it with pretty flower.
The card says spring to me! I added a bit of cheesecloth under the postage photo for some texture. The lace border punch and butterfly are from Martha Stewart. The gem branch was from some older embellishments I had in my stash. Lace trim is from Joann's. Sentiment from PTI. I added a touch of Stickles to the fussy cut bow and key.
I want to mention that Ellen is having a giveaway on her blog to celebrate her 4th anniversary of blogging. I hope you'll stop by and see all the beautiful creations she makes.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and for the kind comments you leave. Have a wonderful week!
