Hi peeps! Happy Sunday to you! If you live along the east coast, I hope you've survived this crazy weather we've been having! I was happy to see Jaydee's Paper Players challenge today, because it gives me hope that spring might really arrive some time soon:
I was tempted to follow those red tulips, but I just got some beautiful papers from Polkadoodles (can you tell I went on a little shopping spree recently?!) called Eleganza, and these pretty florals were just so springy, I had to use them! The Freshly Made Sketches from Jen Timko sketch helped me out too!
So here we go:
This is another card where the papers do most of the work! I made this a side-fold card, which I rarely do, but I already had a piece of cardstock cut and scored that way, so I went with it! I cut all the panels from the DSP, and stamped a sweet sentiment from Close To My Heart on the horizontal panel with Smoky Slate ink. The banner looked a little bare, so I added a couple of butterflies, one from some retired printed SU vellum and the other from the same DSP, and then added a few Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper swirly things:
I stamped the inside with a sentiment from the same CTMH heart, and added a fussy-cut flower from the DSP:
Really easy and pretty! I hope you'll play along with our spring challenge...so many ways to interpret the prompt! Share yours with us at the PP blog and check out what the DT did as well:
Here are a couple pix of what this crazy storm did to one of our trees lining the driveway. The wind was unbelievable, it blew steadily all day Friday and Saturday, with rain and snow interspersed! I am hoping that this means the end of March will be like a lamb, because it certainly came in like a lion! In the big scope of things, this is a relatively small branch, it could have been much worse!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
