All Occasion/Friendship Card Using Multiple Dies and Digi Stamps 4 Joy New Release "Spring Time"

DT Project for Digi Stamps 4 Joy  - New Release - Spring Time

Hi fellow crafters!  I have been dealing with a migraine/headaches for over a week; so I am hoping it goes away soon.  I have heard a lot of people complain about sinus/headaches this year; so maybe it is something going around.  I have to admit I might have caused it myself by splurging on Valentine's Day.  My husband took me out to eat at Outback Steakhouse and the meal came with a piece of cheesecake; so I chose the chocolate and caramel sauce.  It was delicious; but way too sweet for me. I have a challenge with dairy; but normally I only suffer for a couple days if I eat it.  I have had migraines from chocolate before; but never for this length of time.

I created a card using the newest release at Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Spring Time.  I love this cute image with the gorgeous flowers; which was created by Margy.  I had so much fun creating this.  I "cased" a card; created by Julie's Crafty Creations.  She is using a Digi from Digi Stamps 4 Joy as well.   Click on her name to take a look.  

I used the same embossing folder on the inside as I did on the outside; plus the dies are the same as well.  The inside sentiment die cut is from the same set as the image on the front.  I purchased several new ones in the past few weeks; so I need to play with them.
