OCL Spotlight of the week-Back to Nature

Over on the Our Craft Lounge Blog, they're all about nature this week! In keeping with the Nature Theme, I decided to create this small easel card using the Dandy Days Deeply Etched Rubber Stamps! Dandelions are SO pretty.......... I know, they can be a nuisance, but when in full bloom, the yellow is so sunny and vibrant and while they are spreading their hearty seeds, they still remain pretty and of course evoke sweet childhood memories of blowing the pips into the wind hoping that each wish sent of with a wee puff of breath, would be granted.

I used a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers for guidance. This pretty K&Co paper matched the blue bayou paper fabulously. I also used Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Jumbo Lattice Punch, stitched grosgrain, sponges and stickles to give the Dandelion a little extra oomph!

Hope you enjoyed my project today! Please be sure to head over to the Lounge to see the beautiful projects!
