Spring Table Decoration

Happy Weekend! Yesterday happened to be my birthday and my family visited in the afternoon for some cake and coffee. I am so looking forward to spring and decided to bring a bit of it onto my table:


I love this Hero Arts stamp set and wanted to create something, so I made these place cards...


I know, a bit like a children's birthday, but I am not very mature so I guess it's ok :)
And I wanted the cute little frog to hop out of the flowers, too so I created these flower sticks:

For these I just took a rectangle of patterned paper, stamped the image onto the right half, put adhesive onto the back of the paper, placed the stick behind the image and folded the rectangle. Then I cut out the frog. Easy.

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Thank you for visiting and for all your sweet comments!

Hugs,
Vanessa
