Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge #16

 Hello, good morning, and happy Wednesday!  If you're a regular visitor at the Crazy 4 Cocoa Challenge Blog, you know that there's a new challenge up this week.  I think many of us are way more than ready to bring on Spring, and that's what our challenge is this week, "Think Spring".  
For my card, I chose the Gardening Cookie digital stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  Little Cookie, with her potted sprout made me think instantly of one of my favorite things about Spring... GARDENING!  I LOVE to get outside and dig in the dirt, and apparently, Cookie does, too!  I used the technique challenge that I saw on Splitcoaststampers this week, which was to make lattice on a card.  I embossed the white card stock with the Tim Holtz wood grain embossing folder, cut the center of the panel out with a Nestabilities Label die, then cut slender strips to weave behind the open panel.  I finished this card up with Prima flowers and some pretty ribbon, and my think Spring card is good to go.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Happy Stamping!!
