Today is our first of three New Stamps and Stamp Set Releases scheduled for March, April, and May. It is also the beginning of our "Spring Is In The Air Challenge" and you all are still invited to join us. First though, let me tell you all about this adorable and pretty card below:
Because today is special we are starting out with a treat from Design Team member, Julie Koerber, right here on our post. She chose to use one of the new Claudia Tenorio-Pearl sets called Phoebe (CS371). Don’t you just love the sentiment, "Sending Ladybug Hugs"? It makes me want to smile.
Julie said she stamped in black ink, colored in Copic markers and then used Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Circles and Scalloped Circles to create this round shaped card.
Below are some close-ups of her wonderful art work too!! That little "lady" is just too too cute for words!!!............and thank you, Julie, for sharing her with us too! Thank you, Julie, for giving us our wonderful start for a fun day!!
