Cherish Spring with Laurie Schmidlin

Hello!  Happy April!  For many, the first of April brings warmer weather, new growth, and soft, beautiful colors!  Where I live, this highly anticipated season is still a ways off but oh, how I wish it would hurry!  :-)
Here are a couple of Glitz cards I made that were inspired by Spring...
GD Cherish
Soft pastels, singing birds, and beautiful blooms...these are some of my most favorite things about Spring!  With three different Glitz Design patterned papers for a background and some Love Nest Cardstock Stickers, I constructed a collage of sorts to honor all that I cherish about Srping! 
GD Joy for the Journey
From the first moment I saw this beautiful rose sticker (from the Scarlett Glitzers collection), I swear I could almost smell the fragrance of the gorgeous bloom!  To add to the beauty of the life like rose, there are miniature rhinestones sprinkled about on the flower and leaves!
For the background of my card, I lightly stamped one of the background images from the Distressing Set 3 diagonally across the Love Nest Stripe patterned paper.  I really wanted the beautiful rose Glitzer to take center stage, so I kept my layering and embellishments to a minimum.
Thanks so much for joining me today!  I hope your day is one filled with beauty and creativity!  ~Laurie
