Another Spring Card

The weather here is still super gorgeous and I am still making Spring  I know that we are going to be needing some rain soon, but I am really liking the nice blue skies and warm temperatures we are experiencing right now!  I can finally open my doors and windows to let out all of the old "Winter" air and let in some nice fresh Sprng air!  Ahhh!
Today's card is another from Fred She Said.  This one is the Carnation that I specially asked Tracey to make when she was drawing all of her Gorgeous Flower Digi's.  The Carnation is my favorite flower. ;-)  The Carnation and all the other Favorite Flowers can be found here.
Today's card is made on Green Mirri Board with a panel of textured Pink CS run through a Cuddlebug Embosing folder, Perfect Pearls and then a bit of Oil Pastels added for enhancement.  The Tea Bag Medallion is the Saw Blade Fold, Variation 3 from Rosa Clarke and the tile is by Marie B.  To color the Carnation, I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils and then Dry Blended them.  I used a new inkpad from Ancient Page in Pink Pizzazz around the edge of the Carnation which has been cut out with the Nestabilities Labels 4.  The peel-offs have been colored with Sharpies and the ribbon and gems are from my stash.
I hope you are all beginning to see the signs of Spring as well as I am!

Be sure to watch next week, as we have another Blog Hop coming up, which means some more awesome NEW designs from Tracey! :->
