Is it Spring Yet???

While much of the country is trying to brace for more cold or dig out from more snow, it only seems appropriate that Impression Obsession would be wishing for spring! With all those gorgeous florals or spring time images, why not get in the spirit early? I mean, the ground hog -- Punxatawney Phil -- did predict an early spring - so let's savor that! :-)

If you couldn't tell by now.. spring is the latest Impression Obsession Challenge and IO has plenty of new spring images hot off the rubber presses! Just click HERE for all the challenge details! If you use IO stamps and play along, there is a $25 gift certificate on the line! WOO HOO!

On to my creation! Nothing says spring like the flower that is one of the first to sprout... the daffodil!

I actually used three of the newly released stamps -- fresh from CHA! I used Delicate Daffodil as the backgound top portion of my card. I used this awesome border called Daffodil Trio Border for the center portion of my card - I stamped once, colored and cut around the edge and then stamped again and popped up the daffodils on my border.  I used one of the new sentiments as well called Time Began In A Garden. I did color the daffodils with Copic Markers (Y38, Y35, Y23, Y21 and B0000 to shade), cut, layer and done! An easy peasy card that is easy to mail too!

Be sure to check out the spring has sprung creations from the rest of the IO Design Team!
