SpringTime Vintage in Blue!

G'Mornin' Bleeps!
I hope you had a Blessed Weekend! For today's card I used The new DSP from Stampin' Up! for the Design Team Challenge over at Late Night Stampers. We were asked to make a spring/Easer card....so I used the gorgeous SpringTime Vintage papers from the Occasions Mini catty!! I think the blue ones are my fave......so, I hated to cut it up!!! I used another one of my Grandma Tanner's buttons, which I think adds to the cards vintage look. It will take me awhile to get used to using these small little flowers from this new stamp set, also in the Occasions Mini ....they are two stamp stamps ,which I love....but are smaller stamps than I'm used to and took me a little bit to get it right....then, after trying so danged hard.....I decided to cut those little flowers out by hand.....which was a little time consuming, LOL!!! Then, DH said I needed another one on the bottom of the bow....so, then of course, I had to add it.....sometimes I wish  I had a craftin' friend at my beck and call.....just to ask those questions I run to him for....you know.....how does this look? does this need something? what's missing? LOL!!!! I think he personally likes to torture me and tell me stuff, just to mess with me (and get me outta his hair!!!), LOL!!!

But in the end, I liked it, or are the ribbon tails too much? I hope they don't look like octopus tentacles or something and what about the pearls and butterflies....too much too???? Hope it's not too busy for ya',  LOL.....I wonder what hubby would say......no, forget it.....I'm sooooo done!!!LOL!!!!

Have a fabby day and thanks so much for stoppin' by! ;)
