M5D Joys of Spring Card

Welcome to another M5D creation.  I had alot of fun making this card.  I wanted to make a spring card that was eye catching, cute and pretty at the same time.  I used two digis from the McMahon Five Designs store to come up with this card.  There are so many cool things that M5D store has to offer, and they keep getting more things in all the time.  I can never seem to wait to want to use them all.  I have used some of the beautiful flourish rhinestone gems on here along with some of the individual gemstones in the center of the flowers.  The background paper is from the Mariposa pack and as always plenty of stickles to make the image sparkle.  All of which can be bought right at the M5D store.  Don't forget that if you are interested in making a Father's Day card, that M5D has a wide variety of wood papers that make some of the most wonderful masculine cards for the man in your life. 



I used Chelsea's sketch for the CLP#24.  What a great sketch.




A close-up of these cute little birds tweeting with happiness.

Thank you for taking some time to visit with me today.  I hope you enjoy your day, and if you leave me a comment, a special thank you to you.  I appreciate your thoughts and comments on my work.  You bring a smile and inspire me to keep creating. 

Hugs and blessings to you all.
