Waiting for Spring

I am so tired of the snow here in Michigan, this lovely stamp Daisy Floral from Scrolls Work Stamps will hopefully chase the snow away.  I used the Level Up technique from my Technique Junkies Newsletter, I really like the effect.  I used my Tim Holtz embossing folder, paper scraper tool and Frayed Burlap distressing ink.  The paper has some real pressed flowers in it.  I used a little Tattered Angels Wheatfields glimmer mist.  I colored the large pearls with my markers and the lovely Alexandria (Pale Yellow) lace is from Pizzazz Aplenty.
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
