Ippity Stamps Blog Hop - Spring

Good morning!  Spring has finally arrived and to celebrate, I created this card.




I began this card with this weeks sketch from Clean & Simple.    The gingham background was stamped with the {ippity} gingham stamp.   For the stalk of the flower I used  the X border stamp from Quotes a'La Happy,  and the sentiment came from How You Doin'.  The crepe paper flowers were fun and easy to make.  Using a circle punch I punched out ten circles, aligned the circles in a stack and pierced a hole through the center.  I then attached a small brad through the center and scrunched each layer individually. I liked how layering different colored crepe paper gave each flower its own individual look.   A small leaf punch from Martha Stewart was used to punch out the crepe paper leaves.   Some raffia and Memory Box paper completed the card.
