Spring Blossoms


It's Sunday and that means a new challenge at Paper Sundae's
~ Spring Blossoms ~
And the sponsor is one of my favorite stamp companies, Lili of the Valley.  
So of course I HAD to design this week!! LOL

I know, I know.  My card doesn't look very springy.  Guess it's the mood I'm in.  But hey, he is holding flowers so that has to count right?  This sweet little bear is Teddy with Bouquet.  I've left a sentiment off so that it could be used for almost any occasion.  I really distressed up all the edges and inked them all up with Vintage Photo.  The DP is Linen Closet from DCWV.  I decided to go with a brown monochromatic color scheme and give it a old photograph quality since there weren't any springy colors in my paper to draw from.


Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you'll take a moment and peek over at the Paper Sundae's blog to see all the gorgeous Spring Blossom inspiration the Sundae Girls have for you!!
