The Cure For the Winter Blahs!

Everyone seems to be getting itchy for spring, and this card is the perfect antidote to the winter blahs. Featuring some of Stampendous' new released Perfectly Clear images, bright pops of color, cute paper-piecing, all highlighted with white embossing around the edges. Nothing complicated here, maybe a little "fiddley" as my old friend and neighbor, Mrs. Frace used to say, but the end result is definitely worth it. Stamp and emboss several of the flower images on solid and print cardstock. Cut them out, layer and adhere them, popping some up with foam adhesive. The edge of pompom trim and bright buttons finish it off. 
Now, if you look at this card and think to yourself, "I could do something every bit as cute (or better)", then you need to read my previous post regarding the Stampendous Guest Designer BlogStars call out. Hop on it quick, because entries need to be to Stampendous by February 24th...that's THIS Thursday! Come on. Bring it on. Show us what you've got!
