Paper Players 234

DSCF8285

Happy Sunday, peeps!  And happy March!   Today is Paper Players day, and Laurie has our challenge today, very appropriate for the coming season:

I don’t usually mind the cold weather, but I am getting a wee bit weary of it this winter!  At least we had some sunshine this weekend!  So I was happy to see this challenge!  For my card, I used the Freshly Made Sketches sketch 175:

I had gotten this pretty, springy DSP last year at the end of SAB and never really got to use it, so I thought it would be perfect for the challenge:

I used Lil’Inker’s bunny and stitched mat dies, cutting the bunny in Crisp Cantaloupe and his bow in Soft Sky.  For the “ribbon” at the top, I cut a small strip with the edges of the mat die and added the larger bow from the bunny set, as well as a little tag punched with my retired SU tag punch and a sentiment from PTI’s Mixed Messages:

I matted it all with a layer of Pistachio Pudding for a pretty spring finish!  I know there will be lots of wonderful springy creations in the gallery this week…I hope yours will be one of them!  And be sure to check out the other designers’ creations as well:

Playing with icicles….well, throwing them on the driveway!

  4. That DSP is wonderful for a spring card! I sure wish I had remembered it. I need to put my DSP away so I am not tempted to use it for a second card. Oh, well! I love your bunny with the pretty bow. Such a sweet card for spring!

  17. LeAnne, I am so with you! I normally love winter... but this one has gone one too long. We are into our fifth month with snow and I am longing for spring. Your colors, stitched bunny and fabulous layout make me yearn for warmer weather - and chocolate :-)
