So Sweet of You with Candibeans!

Now as I said a couple of days ago I am a sucker for Easter and Spring images, I just can't help it, they are my favorite cards of all to make I think it could be as they seem to usher in new beginnings, brighter days and a goodbye to Winter. Well today I'm sharing a card with a brand new Candi Beans image, I literally ripped open the envelope and stamped her right away, I was so excited to get coloring!

this is really a cute card and I love that design, but I have to delete it at paperminutes, because we want the focus on the is the image that I see at first! It´s the biggest on the card.

Sorry and I hope you´re not disappointed.

Hugs, Heike

Katie - love your coloring - it is top notch! The layering and paper choices are an adventure in themselves... exploring the layers and elements! The die cuts, doilies, paper designs, flowers, border punch and bling all add to the depth of this design with out being gaudy in y opinion! Well done!
Thanks for taking the time to share your project & creativity at our house!
