Blogger's Challenge #91 - Think Spring!

Happy 1st Day of Spring everyone! It looks like spring here, but it's still a bit chilly. I'm really looking forward to getting on that plane to HAWAII tomorrow! Yahoo!

In the meantime, I have this post for you plus two more that will post later today - so be looking - I have a great special that's headed your way! It will run the entire time I'm on the trip and it's one that you WON"T want to miss!

Our challenge was to come up with a springy project or card and I couldn't think of any better color combo than the one in the Sale-A-Bration Delicate Dots paper. I've used two pieces of it here for the left edges, both are punched with the new Eyelet Border punch. There is a layer of Whisper White sandwiched in between that has been run thru my Big Shot with the Small Polka Dot texture plate. Kind of hard to see in this photo, but trust me, it's there!

I've used a piece of the Sale-A-Bration Celery Twill Ribbon from the Bundle and wrapped it around the white layer. The cute little embellishment is a piece of Textured So Saffron Cardstock punched out with the Scallop Circle punch. It's layered with a piece of Certainly Celery punched with the 1 1/4" Circle punch. The sweet little ladybug is from the hostess set 'Darling Dots' and is stamped in Bashful Blue on Whisper White, then punched out with the 1" circle punch. It's popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and the whole thing is adhered to the card front.

For the greeting, I turned to another hostess set, 'Sweet Little Sentiments' and stamped it in Bashful Blue then edged in the same. It too is on Dimensionals and adhered to the card front. That's really it - a very simple card, but it makes me feel sunny when I look at it! I hope it makes you smile!
