G45 Springtime CASE

I'm a big fan of A Touch of Grace blogger, Jerri Jimenez's work.  These Graphic 45 -  Once Upon a Springtime cards were inspired by Jerri's cards which you can find here.  I didn't go to the trouble of making Jerri's handmade mums so I used Prima flowers and a few simple roses I made myself.  Jerri's work is stunning and over the top so I simplified them a bit on my versions.  I had so much fun making these and there is NO stamping on them!  They are all A-2 size.
  • Stamps: NONE!
  • Ink: Color Box Cat's Eye Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan, Distress Ink in Worn Lipstick
  • Paper:  Graphic 45 - Once Upon a Springtime, Neenah Natural White, SU! Naturals Ivory
  • Other: Prima Flowers, Prima Center Kisses, felt leaves, various ribbons, MFT large flower die, pearls,  rhinestones, Spellbinders Dies: Parisian Accents & Labels 4, The Paper Source Deep Pool Satin Ribbon, Olive 1/4 inch silk ribbon, Martha Stewart sprig punch, Glitter Glue, sewing machine.

I adored Jerri's creations with this paper.... and yours just as much! That paper is so beautiful and the Primas come to life paired up with it!!!
