PaperPlay Challenges - Spring Colors

Hi friends!! Happy Friday Eve! heehee...my daughter gets a big kick out me saying that. She thinks it's ridiculous, but whatever helps me get through the week a little easier, I say hurrah for it! LOL!  It's time for a new challenge over at PaperPlay Challenges, and the challenge is to use Spring colors! That's a pretty easy challenge for this time of the year, I think. *smiles*  We have an awesome sponsor this week, Whiff of Joy! So if you're interested in winning a wonderful prize, be sure to link up your spring projects!

For my card today, I used this fabulous new flower girl from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps called Dandy Lion!! She's illustrated by the amazing Annie Rodrigue and is part of the brand new release last week.


I can't even begin to pick a favorite among all these flower girls, as I love each and every one! Here's a link to see all of them at a special price. But this special won't be available for very long, so be sure to get it while the gettin' is hot!! Dandy Lion is stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White paper and then colored with Copic markers. I covered the dandelion part of her outfit and her hair pom poms with Flowersoft. I couldn't make my mind up if I wanted to flock it or Flowersoft it. I settled on the Flowersoft, but next time I will try the white flocking.  The sentiment came with her. The papers are Nitwit Collections matted with Bazzill cardstock, and the bow is made with May Arts silk ribbon which came from Stamp and Create as well as the charm. All the layers are machine stitched.


Please be sure and visit PaperPlay Challenges to see the rest of my teamies gorgeous creations. Then we'd love it if you'd play along with us for a chance to win a prize from Whiff of Joy.

This will be my last post for PaperPlay Challenges as I've made the difficult decision to step down from the team. I want to say a huge THANK YOU to Sandie and Julie and all the rest of the team. They've been amazing to work with, and I'll miss them!
Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!!
