No April's Fool Day Joke Here

Hi All,

Woke up to NO snow as they were predicting some today-fantastic we dodged the big storm that was to be the big story in our area. As a new month begins I would like to put up the last card I did for the month of March. This card was the 2nd card for a swap that I was signed up for.

I got the inspiration for this card out of the March issue of the CardMaker magazine Glimmer Mist tie-dye card. I had gotten some glimmer mist from Stampin Up and came across this article and decided to finally try it. I sprayed it on the flowers to add the color gold to it, the fuzzy brad came from SU, too. The flowers came from a scrapbooking package I got for Christmas the first year I got into scrappin from the ladies that got me started in scrappin, I'm really trying to purge out the old. The sentiment came from the Lucy Labels Cartridge and the border was a Martha Steward punch: doily lace trim a double edge punch , love the look of this punch. Also included the punch border on the inside of the card, too. Added gold rhinestones to give it some bling. I did learn that I need to cut out just one label first to see how it will work with the other colors, I think I should have went a little darker with the Thnking of You, but it's a learning process for me. So now that March is done bring on the sun, I'm ready. I've got at least 4 cards planned for this month, 1 is being done specifically for a challenge and my recipe swap. I would like to get a few layouts done this month, too. Chat later.
Have a great day and thanks for looking
