Good afternoon all!!! Well Friday was the first official day of Spring and for that reason we need to celebrate the arrival of Spring!! I believe this is my favorite season, as fresh new wonders come out to inspire us and delight us!
For this week's challenge your creation should be Spring themed, and use colors from the Soft Subtles color family. Not to worry if you don't have any SU! cardstock, just use light and airy colors that remind you of spring.
On my sample here I used one of the new sets, Petal Pizazz. The colors I used were Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White and Kraft. This color combo came from Stampin' Addicts combo #3. I also used sketch challenge #2 from Stampin' Addicts. If you haven't checked out their website yet, you should!! Here's a link for you!
For my main flower I used the rock-n-roll technique with Pink Pirouette and Perfect Plum. The center flower was stamped in Perfect Plum, punched out with the 3/4" circle and layered behind a 1" circle in Perfect Plum. This is popped up with a dimensional as is the entire flower. Then the main square panel is also raised up with dimensionals.
The squares were stamped with Bella Toile in Perfect Plum ink on those squares and in Sahara Sand on the Pale Plum. I used my newest sizzlit, Little Leaves, in Kraft along with the leaf from the set in Certainly Celery.
And since I haven't used the square rhinestone brads very much, I thought this was the perfect embellishment for this card. A strip of the white organza wrapped with a piece of Pretty in Pink taffeta, and it's done!!
To be entered in the challenge drawing, make a card showcasing a spring theme and spring colors, upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery and post a link to your card to this blog entry as a comment by March 28, 2009 at 12 midnight. I will choose the winner through a random number generator and post the next Sunday.
Even if you can't make the drawing deadline, PLEASE feel free to participate in the challenge and upload your creations at any time. I would love to see it! If you upload your card on SCS, Stampin' Addicts or Paper Craft Planet, please put GCA34(NO SPACE IN BETWEEN GCA AND 34) in the keyword section. That way everyone can look at all of the creations at once! If you've been waiting to join in the fun, jump on in and have some fun!!
