Hello and happy Friday!! As this post goes live today we're supposed to be getting the snow storm of the winter in Ontario so I thought it would be great to share a nice cheery spring card. I coloured Fhiona Riding a Bike from Your Next Stamp using some nice bright shades of purple and pink and matched her up with some papers from Jillibean Soup.
As you can see I added a nice trail of bling behind her to give the feeling of movement to my card. The bling swirl was actually a left over piece that I had trimmed to use on a different item.
Which brings me to my tip of the day: Keep a small dish or container on your desk for all your little bits and pieces of embellishments. I had to cut this small piece off of one of my bling swirls to make it work with the other project and I was left with two small curls. I dug through my rummage bin on my desk and thought they would be perfect with my card.
As a related tip: Don't be afraid to cut apart your embellishments or items to use as you need them. A half a doily or a strip off some bling swirls might be just perfect for your project and you can use up the rest of it at a later time.
