Spring has sprung and it's time for Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous Spring themed cards and projects that we think you'll enjoy! You've probably hopped over from Marian Kay at All Aboard the Crafting Train, I'm stop number 9 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for spring themed paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

Today I'm sharing a simple spring card that I made using some of my favorite dies. I am in love with chevron stripes, which is an easy look to accomplish with the rickrack die from Stampin' Up!'s Tasteful Trim. I die cut several strips and adhered them to my Whisper White card. Then I created a simple flower using the Floral Fusion die and a brad. I tucked a little leaf underneath, made with the Bird punch. Then I stamped the sentiment from SU!'s Season of Friendship onto some Vellum paper to tuck beneath my flower. Love it!

Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Mary Fish at Stampin' Pretty, stop number 10 on the Spring Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for "hopping" by!
