Looking Forward to Spring!

I think that will be a recurring theme for the forseeable future- looking forward to spring! I went on a two mile walk yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed being outside without feeling frozen. Of course I had on my snowpants, winter coat, neck warmer, hat and ski gloves, but I wasn't frozen! The only thing missing was the sunshine.

Yesterday I had a chance to play along with the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. This is a challenge I used to join quite often... not sure what happened. I guess my life changed and my Sunday stamping got pushed off until Mondays.

Anyway, the FS for this week is Jovialjudi. I chose this card of hers to use for inspiration. I kept her layout, including the idea of torn DSP for the only layer. I changed the paper, which changed the colors and I used different stamps. Instead of the gems I used two small grommets at the top right and I added some black satin ribbon from the Occasions Mini.

Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I'll be back with the Diva challenge for the week (a great color challenge) so be sure to come on back!
