Spring Begins

Good Monday Morning!  Spring begins today!  Yippee!
Donna Phelan back again to share a pretty Spring Garden card with you all. 
I can't stress this enough, if you have the best dies that our Dies R Us Store sells, then you can surely create a beautiful doubt!
Here's today's feature:

Many, many dies used on this creation.  Let's start from the beginning.  I created my rolling hills using the Stitched die from Paper Smooches.  I then added the Burlap Border by Cheery Lynn.  I always try to look at dies from every angle.....sure it's a great die for adding texture, but turn it all around and see the different it is now a pretty white trellis for my Spring flowers.  I then topped my 'trellis' with this fabulous Ivy Corner Flourish also by Cheery Lynn.  I die cut several and then snipped them apart, placing them where I wanted them to grow.    

Then I added a white picket fence, isn't that every one's dream?  This Picket Fence is perfect, it's by Amy Design.  Adding a wheelbarrow full of pretty posies just made sense to me.  The Wheelbarrow is by Impression Obsession and was cut in silver and black card stocks, which were just layered together.  After stamping my sentiment, I still felt this needed a bit more, so I added the Lace Corner Deco H die by Cheery Lynn

 And now for some planting!  

The pretty posies in the wheelbarrow are from the Large Madison Window set from Poppy Stamps.  I die cut the flowers and vines from different color card stock and filled my wheelbarrow.  All of the flowers, large and small, have seed bead centers.

The larger flowers on my trellis are Cherry Blossom Branch by Cheery Lynn.  I could have used the 'vine and branch' that came with this die but decided to use that pretty Ivy instead.   Adhesive Pearl accent, Flower Punch on inside.

Here's what I used:
