Better Late Then Never

Good afternoon,

The card on my blog today should have been posted here on May 15.   I am very late for this month's Dueling Darlings duel.  But finally my card is here.  My apologies to the Divas and the Dazzlers for being sooooo late. 

This month's theme was Spring is in the Air. And we received an awesome kit from Sweet P which included:
this cute image from Stampin’ Up stamp set, “Serene Spring” 
Ink : Memento Black & Archival Versafine Antique Sepia
Card Stock : Very Vanilla (SU) & White c/s from Wausau Paper Co.
Designer Papers :  from Costco
Accessories : cut out butteflies from Sizzix BigZ Beautiful Butterflies ; pink daisy flower w/ pearl (from Jolee’sBoutique) ; 5 petal silk flower from Michaels ; styled vanilla hardware from (SU Hodgepodge) ; buttons and beads from my stash ; pink/vanilla gingham ribbon &  polka dotted ribbon from local craftstore.

I love spring because after the long, cold, dark winters here in AK...I am ready for sunshine, green grass, fresh air and baseball season!!!

Thanks for stopping by, please check out all the creations made for this duel.  See my sidebar.
