Sponging With Spring Colors for Fab Friday

Hi, Stampers!

I have a special friend who is having a birthday.  This special friend deserves a special card, and I think I have just the card to make her smile.  I used this week's Fab Friday challenge as my inspiration.

Here's the card I made.

And here's the challenge from Fab Friday.

I just LOVE the way this card turned out!  If colors could shout, these would shout Spring.  They are so fresh and pretty!

To make the main panel of my card, I sponged the three colors onto Whisper White cardstock.  I made sure the entire piece of cardstock was covered with sponging.  Next, I stamped flower images from the Flower Patch stamp set using VersaMark, then embossed them with white embossing powder.

My sentiment and the border around it are from the Tin of Cards stamp set.  

I added some bling with Pool Party Glitter Ribbon.  This ribbon is very easy  to work with.  I was pleasantly surprised. This awesome ribbon will disappear when the new Annual Catalog comes out June 1st, so don't forget to order some before then!

If you liked today's card, please leave me a comment below.  Better yet, subscribe to my blog and weekly newsletter!

Happy stamping!
