Happy Sunday! Happy May Day!! Today is my turn to host the Paper Players!
“Spring has finally arrived --the keyword being FINALLY! It took its good old sweet time here in Pennsylvania. The trees have budded, the flowers are blooming and the bees are buzzing, so I thought a nature theme to celebrate the emerging season would be appropriate! Create a card or project using birds, bees, flowers and/or trees! It can be realistic or fun & funky--your choice!” I chose to make my card fun & funky! Chevrons are very popular in the paper crafting world and this Greenhouse Gala DP had a fun chevron pattern in some pretty colors, so I chose that as my background and proceeded from there:
So you can see I’ve got a bird, tree and a flower, oh well, no bee!!! I used a variety of elements in the colors of the DP to pull it all together:
My little bird is from the Merry Details sizzlet; the tree is from Funky Four; the button is from the Brights collection, and the ribbon is Baja Breeze seam binding, gathered along a pulled thread. The alphabet background is A to Z. I also made a little tag:
Hope you can find time to play with the Paper Players this week and create something with birds, trees, flowers and/or bees!
