Fred She Said-Spring is in the Air

"Spring has Sprung" here in Georgia and oh boy the pollen is an inch deep everywhere!!! I am sneezing like there is no tomorrow!! lol It's that time of year where nature under goes a rebirth. The flowers are starting to bloom so what better way to celebrate than to bring out some pretty Fred She Said images and make some cards.
This image is the "Tulip Trio" image that was a freebie last year. Isn't it beautiful. I am still practicing with my Copic Markers. It's a whole other world of coloring and I think my next post you will see some improvement in my capabilities. It takes thinking in light and dark shadows.
This is the card and envelope gift box combination I made. I used the Tulip Medallion from Spellbinders and distressed inked all the edges with tea dye distress ink. The butterflies are a small and large butterfly punch. Everything has been stickled and I used pearls for accents. The paper is the DCWV Butterflies and Flowers stack.

This is the inside of my card. Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to get out some beautiful flowers and create some cards to celebrate the coming of spring. The Fred She Said store here has a wonderful selection of beautiful flowers for your creations that I am sure you will enjoy crafting with.

Carol, I LOVE that Spellbinders Tulip Medallion. One reason is because tulips are my favorite flower. Can't wait to see them blooming here. This card and envelope gift box are spectacular. I miss you getting to make lots of creations and I know you do. Maybe one day.....

What a delightful spring beauty, Carol! Pollen? I know it sounds funny, but I'm jealous! We got another 5 inches of snow today. Pollen season is still a loooooooooooooong way off. But gazing upon this beautiful card will give me my spring fix for the time being. :)

Hi Carol -
I'm so glad you've joined the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge this week. Your card is nothing short of gorgeous - a show stopper! I'm still absorbing all the details you've incorporated - I could write a book on what I love about this!! And I must say that if this is your first practice at Copics I can't wait until you're fully experienced!!! I do hope you'll return to our SCH challenges again - I love your creations.
Sharon, SCH-DT
