Happy Wednesday, my friends, and almost Happy Spring! It's time for another challenge at Simon Says Stamp, and this week our theme is Easter or Spring!
The design team is playing with one of my favorite companies, Memory Box I chose a beautiful stamp and a die made by them to make my card:
I stamped the beautiful Hope Collage on white cardstock, then colored in the flowers and stems with markers. the panel was trimmed out and framed with a spring green cardstock. My pink printed paper panel is from Carta Bella's Beautiful Moments pad. To finish I added the Perched Reed Bird, adding a black pearl eye and popping him above the stamped panel, and some pale pink pearls.
I also recently received this Memory Box Blooming Violet die and my first KaiserCraft paper pad; this one is called Hey Birdie, and I thought the colors were perfect for spring. Violets are a sure sign of spring for me. I added a Hero Arts sentiment from an old SparkleClear set called Happy Thoughts, and some candy pink pearls to the flower centers.
I hope my cards and those of my teamies have put you into a Spring mood! What will you make this week? Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner!
