Whimsical Spring

Happy Wednesday everyone :)  I am sorry this post is a couple of hours late, my card didn't auto post, I have been having issues with it lately....  It is design team day over at Whimsical Wednesdays.  Today Stephanie challenged us to make a spring card.  Here is what I came up with:

The butterflies are from a CTMH set.  I colored them with my Prisma Color pencils and stickled them up to make them a little sparkly.  The oval and scallop were cut on my Cricut - the Oval and Scalloped Oval are both from Gypsy Wanderings.  I embossed the cream layer with my Swiss Dots embossing folder, and used my Martha Stewart Cutting Board to emboss the three parallel lines.  The pink ribbon in the corner is from Michael's and I used Whimsical Designs Everyday Sentiments in the corner.  I think this is such a pretty and versatile stamp set.

I hope you pop over to Whimsical Designs, see what the DT came up with, and play along with us.  I know their projects will be gorgeous :)  This the last challenge for now at Whimsical Wednesdays.  Stephanie has decided to take a well deserved break.  I want to thank her for the opportunity to be on her team, and create with her beautiful stamps.

A few challenges for my card:
My Craft Spot - spring scallops
Dorcerela Creations - pastel colors
Really Reasonable Ribbon - spring with ribbon
Little Claire's - spring
Totally Gorjuss - spring

A la prochaine...

Hi Michelle! I really love this. Those little pops of color really stand out against the white. And the embossing is nice as well! It's been so great designing with you for a few short weeks! Hope to cross paths again! :)
