Just Wanting Spring!

Believe it or not, this card is not for a challenge!  We will go visit Bella Creations a new and fun group and Gingersnap Creations with this card.  Not sure how I feel about it, but it is prettier in the person.  Just don't like it when the colors are off.  This is much more green and blue compared to the picture.  The technique is from the Technique Junkies called Spritz and Flick (02/07) and when I saw my GF Gerrie recently using this, I wanted to give it a try. The stamps used are from Heartfelt Creations and there is also a die cut set that goes along the stamps.  Now is that a great idea!  I made two backgrounds, because I knew I want to stamp extra tulips for dimension.  I also stamped some extras and cut additional petals, which you can't really see and I did not think to take an angle picture.  The tulip parts were sprayed with Glimmer Mist.  
I hope you all are having a great week.  We are suppose to get considerably colder this week and I can say that Florida is looking very nice to me these days!  Your comments are always appreciated.

That's are wonderful card and I love those "roses of spring". It's still cold in Germany -6° C and for the next few days the announced snow and/or ice-rain.... All things I didn't need ;)

yes it's been very cold down here too (Los Angeles)I've been keeping busy in the evenings by attending my sons' baseball games but it sure is chilly out there in the field at night.

Lovely card, the tulips look amazing with the glimmer mist. The background is so pretty too and I love the butterflies, gives it that special touch.

Love the fact that there are Springtime artwork showing up on Blogs. Doesn't it make you feel a bit better seeing the pastel hues of Spring?
This is absolutely delightful and what a gorgeous background. Almost like there has been a light rainshower.
