Thinking of You in Colors For Spring!

Boy does my little corner of StampinHeaven miss me!  Luckily I've got a few cards in my stash I haven't shared, so although I've been sitting at softball fields and NOT in my craft room I still have a few things to share so my poor little blog is so lonely.

Here is a card I created a while back.  I was inspired by this sketch from Paper Trey Ink - 
                                                      Sketch-3

My card didn't quite come out with the angle I intended like the sketch above.  When I saw the sketch I knew immediately that I wanted to use our new Chantilly textiles (Z1819) and the Hollyhock Zipper Lace (Z1826).  I used Chantilly paper (X7163B) for this card because it reminds me of Spring! (Which I wish would come SOON!).  


 
To create my layers I cut the fabric in 1/2" strips.  Then I pressed them in half which created a 1/4" strip.  I covered the raw edge of the fabric with the next piece of fabric then used the Hollyhock Zipper Lace to cover the 2nd strip of fabric.  To cover ALL the edges that meet in the middle I used a fabric covered button from the Chantilly Assortment (Z1814).  I used the Frame Flair (D1546) stamp set layering two different styles of frames.  This is one of my favorite set in the new Spring Summer Idea Book.  The frames coordinate with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Z1686)  making it so easy to cut and stamp!  I added the new Pink Glitter Gems (Z1807) to my frames.   The "Thinking of You" sentiment is from Casual Expressions (D1525)

I'm entering this card into Heart 2 Heart's Challenge for Easter Colors!
