Hey there friends! Coming to you today from sunny south Florida where our family is on Spring Break! Yes, still taking Spring Break after all these years, lol...that's just one benefit of living in a college town! Today is Paper Players Sunday and Jaydee is our hostess-with-the-mostess for our monthly theme challenge:
My take on "spring" is blue skies, pastel colors and a happy sentiment. I was totally inspired by this card from my CCMC team mate, Julie Edmonds and her super-clever use of the edgelit die.
Isn't that rolling hill of grass the cutest thing ever?! I can say that since Julie thought of it so I'm not bragging, lol! My base is Bashful Blue followed by a layer of a Certainly Celery mat and hill made with the Edgelit die and coordinating Adorning Accent embossing folder. Thank you for the inspiration, Julie!
The balloons from Up, Up & Away were stamped in Bashful Blue, So Saffron and Pretty in Pink, hand-cut and accented with Dazzling Diamonds. They are oh so sparkly in real life and oh-so-happy! The clouds and balloon baskets were stamped in Crumb Cake...
...as was the inside sentiment from Sincere Salutations. I stamped the Distressed Dots background on the inside as well as the outside along with a Pretty in Pink balloon and So Saffron balloon tail.
I hope I've inspired you to play along with Jaydee's "Spring has Sprung" theme challenge this week at The Paper Players. Be sure to check out the rest of the fabulous inspiration from our Design Team. This week we are so excited to welcome two new team members, Heidi & Jenn, as well as one Guest Designer, Sherry! Welcome ladies, delighted to be stamping alongside of you!
