Spring Favorites card

Spring does not last long here in Florida but I enjoy it while it lasts.   I love the mild temps and all the flowers and freshness spring has and love...isn't love a wonderful thing in the spring?

 I made an Easter card today to enter into a few challenges.  First off is the Glue Arts /Tsukineko challenge on the Glue Arts blog.  I used my favorite ink pad to stamp the "Happy Easter" sentiment -- Memento's Tuxedo Black ink pad by Tsukineko. It stamps so even and crisply. I also LOVE their little finger tip daubers.

I also am entering this card in the Lawnscaping inspiration challenge.  I was inspired by the chevron background on this card created by Lawnscaping design team member Lynette:

I really need to get a chevron background stamp (I have the one by Lawn Fawn on my wish list) but since I didn't have one I used a chevron patterned paper from the American Crafts Amy Tangerine collection.  I don't know about you but I am all about chevrons right now....I even bought a cool top today with a brown and turquoise chevron pattern.

I am also entering this card in:
My Craft Spot Challenge #49 -- Spring Scallops
