Spring is in the air!

Good Morning everyone!! As my title states, Spring is in the air. It's crazy here where I live. The weather has been extremely warm for February and I actually have Tulips coming up!!
Anyway, onto today's Friday Mashup Challenge

Here's the challenge:

Here's your Mashup Challenge:

  1. Create a project that's "Monochromatic".
  2. Create a project with "Flowers".
  3. or Create a "Monochromatic project with Flowers". 

This was a fun challenge for me. I don't use flowers that often, so I really enjoyed making this card.

I loved the pink flowers in the photo above, but when I pulled out my cardstock, this yellow just hit me. I started by stamping the flowers from Flower Shop. I used a technique that is kind of like the Rock 'n Roll technique, only instead of actually rolling the stamp in the darker color, I just used a sponge dauber. Each flower was stamped twice and then put together with a brad (Antique Brads). I finished the card by tying some Crushed Curry chevron ribbon with a little bit of Crochet Trim tucked in there.

Now it's your turn. Head over to The Friday Mashup and take the challenge!

Happy Stamping!!


  1. Oh, this is so bright and cheery! I love the double ribbon and the stamping on the doily.

  2. oh my goodness!! So very cute! Love it!

  3. I love love love the yellow Lynda! This is such a happy card and I smile every time I look at it!

    The weather has been crazy here in Alaska....our Jan and Feb were extremely warm and we have very little snow, its horrible. My willow trees are very confused, they are budding already! We don't normally see that until April.

  4. Such a lovely, bright, and cheery card, Lynda! Love how you incorporated all the yellow in the ink, ribbon, and DSP. The doily is such a great soft touch- so feminine;) Thanks for mashing up my challenge this week!

  5. So delicate and pretty, Lynda!
