I can't really complain about our weather this winter.  It's been rainy and wet but we haven't had much snow or ice.  Yet, the dreary sky made me wish for spring so I chose pastels for this card -- Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, and Whisper White.  The polka dots are not ribbon or DSP but were stamped in Whisper White craft ink on Certainly Celery card stock.  The flower was cut and embossed with a retired Embosslit, the leaves cut with the Little Leaves Sizzlit, and the lace with the Eyelet border punch.  The center of the flower is a rhinestone brad.  The greeting is from the Short and Sweet set.  Card design CASEd from one posted to SCS by bon2stamp.

I just love it when a quick and simple card is so pretty!  This one has a Poppy Parade card base and Everyday Enchantment DSP from the new Sale-a-Bration catalog.  (You can get this DSP free with a $50 purchase!)  The window was cut with the new heart Framelits in the Occasions mini catalog and the little heart was punched from the Heart to Heart punch.  A little rhinestone was added to the little heart to give it some bling.  The sentiment was stamped on the inside of the card in Basic Black and is from the Short and Sweet set.
