Cosmo Cricket Card

I am happy to share some Spring cards with you today. I must admit, I'm a stamper at heart, so using the pattern paper provides a greater challenge for me. As a DT for SRM Stickers, I was lucky to receive the new Cosmo Cricket paper called Social Club. Here's my take with these beautiful paper!
{Happy Spring}
I created the flower stems with the ribbon and SRM Stickers-Spring! EASY and EFFECTIVE! I love adding these buttons for the centers of flowers.

For more inspirations, please visit SRM Stickers. Hope this card makes you feel Spring-y! I'm also sharing  card that I made over the Hero Arts Flickr Group for the Scramble Card Challenge. The requirement is using either a sketch or acetate. In my case, I used both elements. I had to retrieve the acetate from my recycle bin (note to myself: NEVER throw away crafty stuff). Here's the result of one hour of card-making.

Have yourself a great week ahead. My son David is safely home from his European trip.
I have lots more fun photos to share later !

Your cards are gorgeous, Virginia! I wish I were as brave with stickers. You are just so good with them! I feel like I need to buy every stamp you use. LOL
