Spring Sampler

It has been so gray and yucky around here lately...I'm sooooo over winter.  I'm ready for spring!  While it is bright and sunny out today, it was not when I made this card yesterday!  I had to find some way to bring some cuteness to a dreary day, and the Spring Sampler stamp set was just the ticket.  This is such an adorable set...even the rain boots and umbrellas are cute!

This card is a little 3"x3" notecard, perfect for tucking in with a little gift.  I colored the images with my markers, then punched them out with a circle punch, adding a Basic Gray circle behind it.  The buttons are from the Brights and Neutrals collections, plus one little retired white button.  I tied Whisper White Baker's Twine in the holes, but didn't want to have white on white.  Did you know that you can dye our ribbon and Baker's Twine?  It's so simple.  I simply pushed down on the twine while running it over the Basic Gray ink pad a few times.  It's good to use some scrap paper or a sponge dauber if you don't want to get ink all over your fingers. :)
