Celebrate Spring! (with Riley)

I’m so glad that the snow is finally melting away. Walking home from work is a bit of a nightmare, with gigantic puddles everywhere, but at least we know that the grass will be green soon (just in time for mosquito season!).

I received this cute little Garden Riley stamp from a great friend recently and I’ve wanted to try it out. The stamp was perfect for this week’s challenge over at the Riley and Company blog. This week’s challenge was to make a girly card using Sophie. I’m don’t think this stamp was meant to be a Sophie stamp, but with her pretty purple watering can, it sure looks like it!

I also wanted to try a new technique I saw recently of making a ruffled ribbon with super tacky tape. The ruffling was a bit harder than I expected, but I’m pretty happy with the result.

Happy Spring Everyone!!
