Paper Sweeties March Inspiration Challenge #29 - 'Waiting For Spring'


Hello there, SWEET blogging friends!  It's time for another challenge at Paper Sweeties and we have the most gorgeous theme and color/photo inspiration for you this time around!  Take a gander...


Ah, spring!!!  Who's with me?!  I decided to create a card loosely based on the colors and very based on the spring/flower theme.  Come and see...


I started by creating a focal panel.  This fun watering can is from the Showering You With Love stamp set, as are the clouds.  The flower, stem, and leaf are from the Make Today Beautiful set.  I colored the flower and can in using Sakura glitter gel pens.  The clouds are filled with Stickles--the shine is AMAZING on this card!  I used patterned paper for the sky and grass and added some sequins in Cookie Dough, Bubblegum, and Robin Egg. Liquid pearls help to hold the sequins in place.



I stamped the sentiment onto the patterned paper on the card base.  This one is from the Make Today Beautiful stamp set.  I love this fun font!


I totally adore this super fun card!  I hope you like it, too!  If you do, I'd love for you to leave me a comment and let me know! :)


That's all for me today, friends!  I hope you come and join in this fun challenge!  Also, leave some love with the other amazing gals on this DT--they've all got gorgeous inspiration to share, too!

Here's the list~

Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Hi, Mynn, I think for some unknown reason I did not get all the e-mails when you posted. It's impossible that I would have missed the post and not commented if I did get the e-mails!!! I always comment on all posts of my friends, but I have not visited these post!!! So sorry - hope this is not going to happen on a regular basis!!! I love to visit my friends' blogs when they post and then leave them some luv!!! Oh, boy, don't know what happened!!
Any way, your card is so pretty!!!! I love the sweet watering can and the pretty silver clouds!!! The flower is lovely and I love your bg papers!!! Beautiful, Mynn!!!
