My Latest ATC - Embrace the Day

This card is for the April “Springtime in Paris” ATC swap over on the Blissful ATC Swap Blog


The background is fabric (I love to use fabric) and the pastel flowers are from my stash of Prima flowers.  The blue and white ones as well as the trailing white one were in a box of flower pieces gotten at auction.  The centers of the flowers are little self-adhesive half-pearls I found at Michael’s for $1.00 a package. 

Sorry for the shadows.  I am having to take my pictures outside (haven’t had time to set up my desktop picture studio yet) and the sun wasn’t quite overhead anymore.  Sunshine makes wonderful pictures if you can get everything set right, it’s just that I’m definitely no photographer!

This was one of the easier cards I’ve made.  I normally have trouble with any type of Spring theme since me and pastels don’t get along very well, but this just fell together in a short amount of time.  Guess thinking about what I was going to do off and on for a week helped!
