Freaky Spring Has Sprung!
Welcome to Spring!! (Or at least the Freaky version of it!!) You should have just come from the ever-so-Springy projects of Dawn Olchefske ... I am LOVING the color combos she used with her beautiful daisy garden!! C'mooooon, Spring!!
I kinda had an explosion of pink in my craft room ... after having made this first card, I wanted to make a TOTAL departure and do something absoLUTEly different ... it didn't quite work out how I had planned ...
This Vintage Vogue stamp set is so much fun to create with!! I kinda started stamping and cutting and flowers and couldn't hardly stop myself (yes, I must admit, I am one of those WEIRD ones who actually ENJOY "fussy" cutting ... go figure)!

Ink: Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz

As I stated earlier, this card started out in a COMPLETELY different color combo!! I started with Tempting Turquoise, Black, Crumb Cake and Whisper White ... NOT where I ended up!! Try as I might, I could not get the "vision" of what I had planned in my head to come out onto the paper ... so I just gave in to my inner Pink Princess and let 'er go ....

And ... what the heck ... I just let the pink take over on this one!! I have NO excuse other than I like pink, and pink makes me think of flowers and spring and Easter ... so there!!! This is actually one of those little plastic "goodie" eggs you get for the kids' Easter Baskets (and YES, you CAN open it and fill it with CHOCOLATE-Y goodness). I can't believe I actually had THAT many rhinestones (there are 85 of them on here!!). Faberge' eggs got NOTHIN' on this baby!! (And it is standing in a little EMPTY brad/button container ... way to recycle, baby!)
