Spring Mix it Up

DSCF3556-1

Finally!  The sun is shining here in SE PA, the birds are chirping, I have my window open a tiny little bit--it actually feels like spring!  (I even took my picture outside!)  So for today's No Time to Stamp Challenge #80 from Sharon, which is to mix stripes or dots along with another print or pattern, I chose some cute little spring tulips.  What fun!  This card is just full of blog candy goodness!

The image, the PTI floral paper and the button are all various blog candy yummies!  The polka dots is PTI's Polka Dots Basics, which I felt I had to have and have hardly used.  I love clear stamps but sometimes I feel they are intimidating to me;  they "wiggle" and sometimes I get fuzzies on them that I can't seem to clean off.  I guess I need to give them a bath, as Mishmash recommended.  Anyone who can give me some tips on that, feel free to respond!  Anyway, for the first time, I don't think I did too bad aligning it...just need some more practice.  I added some sparkle to the tulips with my Sakura Gelly Roll pen, too!  Hope it cheers you up!  Enjoy your day!
