Spring Fever at the Stamp Club

Hello Friends!

I've got spring fever!  I'm ready for warmer temperatures!  While I wait, I designed a cute little mini spring banner.

It's pretty small for a banner, but I think it's just darling!  I used the Perfect Pennants Bigz L die to cut the triangles.  I used the new Watercolor Wonder designer series paper, and some of the silver foil designer series paper.  The colors are:  Whisper White, Gumball Green and Island Indigo.

Here's a closer photo.  I used the new Delicate Dots embossing folder (FREE during Sale a Bration) and some Gumball Green embossing powder for the sentiment.  You can't see it very well in the photo, but I punched the flowers out with the new Petite Petals Punch, then I used a bone folder and my fingers to distress the flowers until I could separate them.  Then, I glued them to the banner with the fuzzy side out.  "It's pretty cool."

That glitter was just added with sticky strip.  

This is one of the projects my stamp clubs with make this month.  I wish you were in my stamp club! 

Who can name the movie I got the italicized quote from?
