Sweet Spring




I've got two cards for this month's Paper Dolls Challenge #46:  Spring Bling.  I used this week's CR84FN50 challenge colors of Pink, Orange and Yellow.  I finally broke into my Raspberry Fizz patterned paper pack, and boy is that paper gorgeous.  I think I'm going to be using this paper a lot, and I can't wait to collect all the colors.  I used Gina K white for both of these cards, as I colored the flowers with Copic, and didn't want the bleed to show through the card.




I wasn't sure which layout to go with, so I made one of each.  I think I prefer the top one.  Which do you prefer?

I'm also entering these cards into this month's St. Luke's Charity Card Challenge Spring into Spring

Please stop by our Paper Dolls blog and add your "Spring Bling" card.  There is some fabulous blog candy to be won, provided by the ever-generous Renee.


Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Sweet Spring

Other:  Nestie Circle, Memory Box Window Box, Twine, Button

  2. These are both gorgeous - awesome colours and layouts! I love those sweet little flowers and that gingham paper just screams spring. :) That window box die is fabulous too. Perhaps a strip of colour on the "moulding" part of the window box would help it to pop a bit more? Not sure... just a thought.

  3. Two great cards Joyce. You did a grat job with the colors. Each card has a unique element to it. Love how the flowers peek out from the first card, but I also love that window box.

  5. Both are beautiful! I do love the circle a tiny bit more maybe... The paper is gorgeous. I think the Sweet Spring flowers will end up being very versatile.

  7. Oh, how sweet! Seeing these cards makes me wish I'd gotten that Spring set! I think the 1st is my favorite! Funny, how different they look with the only difference is one is in a circle, the other has the flower bed! I think you designed the perfect card for those colors!

  24. I love both of them - the circle one is very clean and frames the flowers but I do love the little window box effect in the second one too.
