I still enjoy seeing wisteria in bloom however (some of the aggressive vines grow along various highways and it's always a pleasure to see it.) To me, it's a sure sign spring is here (and no, it's not in bloom yet).
The stamps are from Victorine Originals. I stamped both first and second generations of SU Lavender Lace to form the wisteria bloom, and second generation Distress Mowed grass on the leaves.
The mulberry paper is a snippet I came across when looking for colors to match the ink (actually everything on this card is a snippet). I love the softness the mulberry paper adds to a card -- it's another thing I'd like to see come back in style, along with vellum.
The card is for these challenges:
