There's still snow on the deck, and snow in the yard, but it really is starting to feel just a little bit like spring! Soon we'll be able to go out and look for pussy willows in the bush.
I do like it when this type of card works -- simple, but a little bit stylish. I cut an oval out of a post-it note so I could lightly sponge the blue background. The pussy willow branch is stamped and then clear-embossed. (I showed the technique the other day to a friend who is planning on making her own wedding invitations. It's fun to watch someone else enjoy the magic of heat embossing for the first time!) I added some white flocking to the catkins for texture... and because otherwise the sponging shows through! ;)
This card fits this week's Simon Says Stamp and Everybody Art Happy Birthday challenges as well as this week's Do You Stack Up (DYSU#11) challenge to add a bow.
Supplies: white & blue cs, Sunshine Designs pussy willow, JudiKins calligraphic sentiments, Stormy Sky & Vintage Photo distress inks, clear embossing powder, Studio G white fresh flocking, white Offray ribbon
