Happy Spring

Happy Spring! This card my second project designing for CutCardStock, I used the Curious Metallic paper in the white and lime green, this paper is even on sale right now at CutCardStock. Curious Metallic is to die for, its shimmer is so pretty and rich looking it really makes any project pop! Once you have a solid, quality base as in a great cardstock, it really make designing so much fun and a breeze.

Spring is knocking on the door here in beautiful Colorado. Yesterday it was a glorious 72, today we are expected to get 2 inches of snow. I drove to Boulder yesterday and saw about 100 precious baby cows, so spring is definatly here! Mod Squad has a Springy color palette to play with, I chose to work with the colors black, white, buttercup yellow, and an orangish red. Thanks for the inspiration Mod Squad!
