Hi There - 2S4Y

I don't know about you, but I am ready for spring.  Usually this first hits me about the middle of January, but the feeling has held off until now and I am ready for winter to be over.  I created this card from the awesome sketch by Laura this week at 2 Sketches 4 You.  I used some brighter colored scraps to lighten my mood a little bit.  I thought that the sketch looked like a tall card, and so my card is 4 inches by 9 inches and fits perfectly into a letter sized envelope.  It is snowing here today and so my lighting isn't the best, but I was able to lighten it a little in Photoshop.

I used some dimensional adhesive to lift the flowers and center of the sun off the card a little bit....
        Cardstock, ink, ribbon, embossing powder, punches, sentiment stamp: Stampin' Up!
        Stamp set: Autumn Leaves
        Patterned paper: Dream Street
        Brad: Making Memories

I hope that you are having a great week!!  Thanks for stopping by!!
