Happy Sunday, and happy first day of Spring! Here in the Northeast we are expecting a little snow tonight. Hopefully it is the last of the year. To celebrate the arrival of Spring, Jaydee has a timely theme challenge for us at The Paper Players, Clean and Simple: Celebrate Spring!
I was inspired by the branches and blossoms in the beautiful inspiration photo. They made me think of flowering Dogwoods, a sure sign of spring. I used my Dogwood stamp set from the Technique Tuesday Greenhouse Society and stamped it three times, masking off as I went. As this is a clean and simple challenge, I resisted the strong urge to add sequins or candy dots!
For my layout, I was inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm also playing along with Addicted to CAS where the code word is Delicate.
Stamp Sets: Dogwood, Pansy (Technique Tuesday)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Basic Black, Soft Sky (Stampin' Up)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Tools: Big Shot, Hello Die (Mama Elephant)
Thank for stopping by, and please visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players! We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!
