Happy Spring!!

Hi there dear friends!!! I am in heaven right now!! Not only is it spring, but it's spring with a vintage twist-Glitz Style!  I am so in love with Glitz Design Afternoon Muse papers and goodies!! The colors are gorgeous,  the stamps are fantastic, and all the elements are absolutely amazing!!!   

In the first card, I used Glitz Design Afternoon Muse Stamps, Whatnots and Glitzers to inspire my card!!  Isn't the corner stamp simply amazing???  So very vintage!  I will be using the Afternoon Muse stamps quite often I'm sure!
The Afternoon Muse Glitzers are my favorites too!! I layered the birdies on top of the sweet Glitzer frame and don't they look fabulous??  You can also see a close-up of the stamp in the following photo:

Oh my gosh! You certainly gave your birds and elegant background! Your next card with the ribbon, button, eggs and flower, is equally wonderful!
