Sweet Spring!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Wednesday!!! Just one more day until the release day at Taylored Expressions! I cannot even contain myself! You are all going to LOVE the new releases!!!

My card today features a SUPER sweet image from one of the sets to be released, Sweet Spring!!! How CA-UTE is this!!!

Now, we all know I love these cuppies right? I talk about it all the time, but seriously, the cuppies in this set are OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!

I stamped this little cutie in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Bright White cardstock (available at Taylored Expressions and THE best paper I have used my Copics on!!) and I framed him in Oval Nestabilities!! I colored the entire image with my Copic Markers, and the bow was stamped twice and popped up on dimensionals!

ALL of the DELICIOUS papers and embellishments on my card are from the Easter Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions!! LOVE this!! The Easter Key Ingredients includes beautiful Prism Cardstock in Frosted Teal, Frosted Kiwi, Razzleberry Light, Razzleberry Medium and Birchtone Medium! Such awesome colors for Easter!! It also includes the wonderful Choice Bright White Cardstock, patterned paper from My Minds Eye called Tiny Dancer, 5 yards of ribbon, an assortment of felt and shimmer flowers, and an assortment of pastel brads!! How FABULOUS is that!!! I LOVE the Key Ingredients kits...matchy matchy is my middle name (er...names...LOL!).

The layout on my card is one of my all time favorites, and one I seem to always go to when I start a card!! I LOVE how this layout showcases some of the awesome patterns from the patterned paper by My Minds Eye, Tiny Dancer!

I added piercing (shocking!!) around each of my squares, ribbon knots on two of the corners and yummy, shimmery brads with flowers on the top left corner!

Make sure you go check out the gorgeousness that the Baker's Dozen has created right here! These girls are AMAZING!!
