Celebrate Spring with From The Heart

I looked on my schedule last week and this week seemed a little light on cards so I thought I'd add a little extra one in :)
I decided to go with a wonderful Easter image from From the Heart stamps and it was so wonderful to color.
I liked the soft pastel colors of the paper and although not Easter or Spring themed I thought they lead themselves nicely to this card.

I did a little paper tole with the image, it is fun but I really need some new scissors, mine aren't quite sharp enough :)
I also decided to have a try at a paper bow, I know there are very 2010 but I wasn't so involved in card making then and the trend passed me by.
The papers and the softness of the colors remind me of an old fashioned parlor, the striped paper looks like wallpaper to me!
Anyway I hope you like this and be sure to check out more of Faith's fabulous Easter and Spring images at the From the Heart Stamps store
