TT90 The Stamping Boutique - Spring Cleaning

Hi there,

I'm here to share my DT card for the 'Tuesday Throwdown'.  This week our fabulous sponsor is The Stamping Boutique.

Our 'theme' for the week is 'Spring Cleaning'...so dig out all those supplies you've been hoarding and make something new!!

I used the fabulous 'Kite and Rainbow' digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique - isn't it cute...I can think of so many occasions that this image would be perfect for and I love that it's suitable for male/female cards.  I prettied mine up a little with a twine bow and little heart embellishment and added some Diamond Dust Stickles to the rainbow for added sparkle :)

As for 'Spring Cleaning', well I have always hoarded ribbons and twine and two of my favourites are right here on my card.  I'm always reluctant to use my favourite patterned papers too - but I'm getting better at using up the old before breaking out the new. 

If you get the chance to play along, we would LOVE to have you join us,  You can find all the details 'here' and you will also get the chance to see what the rest of the Tuesday Throwdown DT have made to share with you.

I used the March 11th Card Positioning Systems sketch (CPS256) for the layout of my card.

Have a wonderful week!
