Spring Flowers

One of the yahoo groups I belong to has a swap this month with the theme of spring flowers. From my stash I pulled out a clematis rubber stamp I had and decided to use it for this spring themed card, although I am not sure if they bloom in the spring.  I will have to Google and find out. I am definitely not a gardener.  I added a butterfly, sentiment, ribbon and some bling to give the card more interest.  Hope my swap partner enjoys the card.

Well back to my craft room to clean up my mess. 



  1. Great card Judy, I don't thing the person who receives it will care anyway, but just to let you know they bloom in the early summer.

  2. Judy,
    I was in a botanical garden today in a neighboring town and they had clematis blooming. Everyone was amazed at the bright pink color of this variety. Many said they had some that favored the purple color. So you choose right.
