Sending Springtime Smiles!!!

Hello Everyone,
Happy Saturday~Today's post is a card that I made without my cricut. I am entering it in a few cricut-less challenges.....I wasn't sure about this challenge as I am always using my cricut or gypsy for my projects....a bit out of my comfort zone BUT I tucked it away and I hope you like what I have come up with!!


My card base is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, base layer at 4 x 5 1/4. I used a SU stamp set called Easter Blossoms. I stamped the image on a 2 x 2 1/2, layered it at 2 1/8 x 3, layered it at 2 1/4 x 3 1/8. The next layer is 4 x 4 1/4 which I then used a Martha Stewart punch for the border. I  layered it on the cute polka dot paper which was cut at 3 3/4. The sentiment~Sending Springtime Smiles was also in the set and I used a SU punch oval and scallop oval  to layer around that. The printed paper I used is from Creative Imagination, polka dot paper was from Lasting Impressions and solid card stock from Bazzill. The bling and ribbon was from Craft's Direct.
Challenges that I am entering in:
My CreativeTime~Throwback Thursday~sketch  and cricut-less
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #53~looks like spring

  2. This card is beautiful. I'm just starting out and I dont even have a cricut yet, so all my cards are made by non cricut materials. LOL let me say I'm so looking forward to a cricut...

  13. Sherrie,

    I love the sketch of your card (all the layers, the bow, and the stapled ribbon...)!!! :) Your bow is perfect-do you use a bow easy? I have been eyeing that Stampin' Up set since it came out! It's so cute!

    Thank you so much for sharing,
