Tuesday Throwdown #195: Spring Blossoms

Welcome to a another week of fun challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  I hope you had last week making  cards for that special lady in your lives. Today we kick off a new challenge sponsored by Sweet 'n Sassy and the theme is "Spring Blossoms". The digi I'm using is called "Bluebird".
The image is also available in a clear stamp set called "Praise the Lord" with a beautiful verse from Psalm 28.

I made this card a while back with no one specific in mind but it's a good one to have in the stash and will work as an any-occasion card.

My regular readers will know that our furbabe Rosie is going through a little health crisis. She beat cancer once before and I'm praying she's up for a repeat performance. I am WE are so touched and grateful for the outpouring of love and cuddles. I want to share this card with all you beautiful angels out there - thank you for all your prayers and well-wishes, friends.    

The card base measures 5"x5". The patterned paper is from First Edition's New Leaf pad.
Minimum embellies: cream lace, a couple of blue brads and some tiny yellow bling.

I coloured the image with Graph It and Promarkers, and used SB Classic Circle
Eyelet Circle to cut and matt the image. Foam tape for dimension.  

Couldn't bear to throw away that strip and I found a place for it inside!
