A Springy Hello

It's my day to post on the a2z Scrapbooking Blog.  I know many of you are in the midst of a pretty severe winter, so how about thinking Spring?!  My card uses two of the wonderful stamp sets in the a2z store’s SALES/RETIRED section--great bargains.
a2z Feb 2
I started by inking the little flower using another sale item–Pale Yellow ink dauber–& randomly stamped it around the card front.  The frame was white embossed twice with one frame completely trimmed out & just the inside of the other one. After stamping “Hello” in Cup O’ Joe on the partial frame, it was attached with foam tape & mounted to the center of the card.  One additional flower was trimmed out & popped up.  The frame & added flower were coated with Stickles & pale yellow pearls decorate the flowers.  Now it’s your turn–use at least ONE HERO ARTS STAMP, HERO ARTS DIGITAL IMAGE OR HERO ARTS DIE CUT (Hero Arts Silhouette shapes are allowed too) along with any type of embossing & enter the February challenge.  Remember, you can use GRETA15 to get 15% off a minimum $25 purchase in the a2z store. There's a complete list of supplies on the a2z blog.  I'm entering the sparkle challenge at Loves Rubberstamps.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

Greta, this is so pretty. I love the look of yellow flowers, so sweet. What a wonderful design and I have to agree with another one of your comments it does remind me a bit of Lemon Meringue Pie and your card is just as sweet.
