Happy Spring

I made card as an entry to two challenges, Papertrey Ink's MIM #160 and Taheerah's Cure for the Monday Blues.

For Papertrey Ink's MIM #160 challenge, we have must create a card with heat embossing on die cuts or two step stamps.

For the other challenge, we have to create a card using the inspiration photo that Taheerah provided.

I took the bold neon colors and use them on my card. Since the inspiration photo reminds me of spring, I created this Happy Spring card.

I use Wreath for All Seasons set for this card. I first stamped the wreath of twigs with Stampin' Up Early Espresso and then stamped the wreath of dots three times, turning the stamp slightly each time. I used Stampin' Up Baja Breeze and Daffodil Delight ink for the first and second stampings. For the last stamping, I embossed the image using purple neon Zing embossing powder.

For the sentiment "Happy Spring", I used a stamp from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday set as well as a stamp from the Wreath for All Seasons set.

I also used some neon yellow washi tape as a background for the card.
