IBSIC #48 May every sunrise hold more promise

We have some pretty Spring colors for you to play with this week at IBSIC #48. There's also some blog candy up for grabs—two packages of flowersjoin us for a chance to win! We've got new release previews starting this weekend. Visit Joanna's blog tomorrow for release information and every day after for sneak peeks, contests and give-aways.

I'm using three Inspired by Stamping sets with my card todayBeautiful Ovals, Amazing Inspirations, and Big Notes.

I love these ovals, they coordinate with all the IBS sentiments and just about anything else you want to use them for. I chose a lacy look one to frame the inspirational sentiment.

Inside the card I used Big Notes's "I'm here for you". I like these larger stamps. I have all four setsBig Notes, Big Notes II, Big Treasures and Big Wishes (I guess I like to see the "Big" picture). They're reasonably priced, they work great inside or outside the card, and their larger size makes them easy to read.

And here's our photo, to put you in the mood for Spring:
