Happy Spring to My Friend

contest_banner_500a

I'm playing along today with this month's Hero Arts contest challenge and using a brand new stamp called Big Post Card.  One of my favorite card makers, Jacqueline, has been using this with gorgeous results; just look at all the cards she's made with it already, one more amazing than the other!  

So I pulled out a new paper pad, K&Co's Susan Winget's Floral Mat Pad and stamped the post card over one of the papers.

Happy Spring, My Friend

I used Latte chalk ink for most of the stamping and green hills mid-tone ink for the stamp.in the corner.  I added some stamps from these HA sets: Three Dotted Flowers, Carte Postale, and So Artsy.  The Happy Spring sentiment is from The Craft's Meow set Easter Blessings.  The little glittered heart in the center of the flower is a Sticko Glittered Hearts sticker.  Because this post card image is smaller than an A2 card, I was able to have my flower hanging over the edge and still fit it into an A2 envelope.  

It's been fun playing today - thanks for visiting!
