Carousel Card and Flowers!

Here is a card from this month's kit! This card took me three days to complete. I'd work on it for awhile and it just wasn't coming together. I almost gave up a couple times, but I didn't and said to myself that I'll just come back to it later. I kept coming back to it and thinking of something new to add and I think it turned out pretty well. It's pretty girly and floral, which isn't my style at all.


All supplies are Stampin' Up! All paper used is from my March Monthly Scrapbook Kit. The card opens from the bottom and folds up.


I have flowers blooming in my front yard! These are crocus flowers and are usually the first flowers to bloom after winter. I'm so excited for summer to come!

I am SO excited for summer as well. It's starting to feel like it here in Texas... but then a cold day will come out of nowhere. ack.

Your carousel note is so beautiful and elegant!

Lucky you on the flowers, but we've had some spring like weather the last few days so I'm hoping to see flowers soon too.

What a gorgeous card! And I am SOOO jealous of your flowers. We don't have snow but it has been so wet that anything that should be growing isn't...Thanks for the peak of spring.

Well you do "girie and floral" beautifully, even if it isn't your style, Jessica! (I do love your fresh, clean style though! ;-D)
