sweet summer... ♥ A Spring Card ♥

One of the fun new ways to make a card is using the Spring card technique. So today I decided to try one! They are super easy to make! The tutorial can be found HERE on SCS. I also used today's fun Free for All challenge, which is to use a ice cream cone on your card.I punched out some scallop circles for the ice cream, covered them in glitter sprinklers and then added them to a hand cut cone. I then topped it off with some button cherries. The papers I used are by October Afternoon (Fly A Kite), The Girl's Paperie and Little Yellow Bicycle (Snugglebug). I also used a paper doily, a Studio G stamp, Webster's Pages Sparklers buttons, trim and seam binding ribbon.I hope you all have a super sweet summer and a great weekend! I will be back sometime next week as I am going to be getting the house ready for our annual 4th of July party. It usually takes us a week to get everything ready and that's when I'm not pregnant! So I will need all the time I can get! LOL Have a wonderful 4th!!

Hugs....
