The Paper Nest Dolls Inspiration Post - Spring Bouquet Ellie

Good morning and welcome to my first inspiration post for The Paper Nest Dolls! With the new Spring stamps that Christine released a couple of weeks ago, there were so many gorgeous ones, so I had to use a different one for my inspiration card today.

This card using the gorgeous Spring Bouquet Ellie and I can see so many different types of cards that this image could be used for. My first idea was a wedding or bridesmaid thank you card, but instead I opted for a simple "Have a wonderful card".

This card is also for:
