The Card Concept: Spring Joy

There’s a new inspiration challenge at The Card Concept and the theme is Wearing O' the Green.  I don't think I've ever made a St. Patrick's Day card so I took some liberties with the theme.  I skipped the first holiday of the spring and moved on to Easter! My Clean and Simple card was inspired by the colors and by the pops of patterns on the pillow.

There's such a variety of ways to find inspiration in this photo. There's the beautiful tree - or the bike - or go full St. Patrick's and use shamrocks. I found the Floral Burst Collage die and thought it had the look of the shamrocks. Then I pulled out greens and yellows - even one in polka dots - and it was so fresh and springy.  I still wasn't sure where I was going with it so I tried a variety of sentiments.  It's always in the back of my head that Easter is about 6 weeks away and I typically send about 40 cards - so "Easter Joy" was my choice! I did it in brown based on the inspiration and then added some sparkle (you can see that better in the first picture.)

I hope to see you playing along with us at The Card Concept!
