Inspired Stamps: Spring Inspiration & Embossing Folder Giveaway!!

Happy Thursday, bloggers! I have a distressed shabby chic Spring card and a giveaway today for you! My card was made with Inspired Stamps' newest release Spring Sketches, an older favortie from last year's Spring release Butterflies and Blooms, and Lovely Lace. I used the Darice Chevron Embossing folder and distressed it with Tim Holtz distress stain in Picket Fence, an inking tool, and Hero Art's ink pad in wet cement. I stamped the Lovely Lace on a Kraft card stock and distressed it the same way and fussy cut it. I stamped the flower and leaves from the Spring Sketches stamp set, colored with Copics, and paper pieced it onto the doily. Then wrapped heaps of burlap twine from May Arts and tied a bow and added a flag with the pretty and bold Bloom sentiment from the Butterflies and Blooms set. I'm giving away the Chevron Embossing Folder from Darice because I accidentally ordered two. My mistake, your gain! :)
