Spring Hello with Wax Paper Resist

A flowering tree is the highlight of this card.  IT was stamped in brown ink using HOTP Four Seasons stamp set. It was colored with gel pens and my Dove blending pen.  Diamond Amethyst Flower Soft adds an extra touch to those flowers.  The focal was stamped on a white piece of card cut with a Spellbinder's die - as was the sentiment.  

I love that littlest die from the Resplendent Rectangles set for greetings and labels! In this case, the greeting is matted on the same embossed glimmer paper that forms the borders on either side of the card. (Embossing done with an M-bossabilities folder from Spellbinders). 

The background papers are two that I made.  The purple is one of those made on glossy paper using wax resist and Dusty Concord distress ink (I talked about making them here).  The translucent paper in the center is one of the left over pieces of wax paper that I colored with alcohol ink - as discussed here.
