Spring is Here!

here is the photo:

I was inspired by the colors, the textures, and the shine :o)
For the most part, this card is pretty simple, but one bit of advice is that i would Die-cut the white panel first, THEN use the embossing folder on it, otherwise you will smoosh your embossing....found that out the hard way ;o)
I heat embossed the sentiment in Silver Embossing powder for the shine, and added a faceted button, inspired by the pretty glass in the picture

Clean Baby!

Here is my sample for This Weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which is Clean and Simple! 
I actually was inspired by this card, made by Deanna at Kloset Kreations. Loved her card! Thanks, Deanna, for the inspiration!
Since this card is so simple (and clean!) it doesn't take much explaining, except for the letters...
I used marker to color the individual letters from the "happy birthday" stamp in the "Best Dad Ever" stamp set, then punched them out using the Owl Builder punch. I used the part for the larger parts of the eyes.  I also used my Simply Scored to make some score lines to put the letters across. :o)
