What Really Matters

     I've been playing in the From the Heart Progressive Challenge for a few months now and for today's card, I used the April image.  I love that sentiment (which is part of the set.)

I took my colors from the challenge at Two Paper Divas.


     This is one more card which uses up scraps that were in the basket.  I used my ProMarkers to color the image and cut it with oval dies by QuicKutz.  The sentiment piece is cut with a Stitched Square die from Memory Box and the swirl is a Cheery Lynn corner die, with one side of the corner trimmed off.

     The background piece has been dry embossed and all three ribbons came from the scrap bin.

     I love making spring cards in April.  There's just something about the month that says the house and garden should both be filled with flowers and I love cards with flower images.  If you don't believe that, just check out my posts this upcoming week.  :-D
