Stamps are from JustRite.  The scallops and circle were cut with Spellbinders dies.

Card 4 - Spring Floral

The stamps for this card are from Penny Black.

The original design of this card was created by Elizabeth Allan, a friend of mine who's a talented stamper and writer.  I simply chose different colors for Spring!
