Sunny Inspiration

Ooooh, I have spring fever!  The sun is out, it's supposed to be in the 70's today, my son has his first baseball tournament this weekend, and there is some bright, cheerful inspiration over at Stampin' Celebration!  Here's the fun Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge photo this week:

Here's my creation based on this inspiration:

I recently had someone (hi mom), ask if I ever make cards in sizes other than the standard size.  So, I thought this was the perfect time to create a different sized card - hee hee.  This one is 5x5 and I just love how it turned out!  (And lucky for me, Stampin' Up! has some awesome square envelopes to match!)  I really like how challenges make me go outside of my comfort zone.  These aren't colors I would normally just grab to create and I sure wouldn't whip up a folded flower out of the blue.....  So, what are you waiting for?  Grab your paper and get creative!

Products Used:
Paper:  Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Greenhouse Gala DSP
Stamps:  Apple Blossoms (Hostess Set)
Ink:  Basic Black
Punches:  Eyelet Border, Corner Rounder
Ribbon:  1/8" Taffeta in Basic Black, Old Olive Satin Ribbon
Other:  Big Shot Matchbox Die (for sentiment tag), Brights Buttons, Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Make sure and stop by Stampin' Celebration and check out the other amazing projects from the rest of the Design Team.  We're making some exciting changes where you can have a chance to be our guest designer!

Beautiful Spring card. Makes me want to get out and plant something!
It's nice to see a card of a different size...

These colours are so refreshing. So glad someone is having nice warmer weather. Love your scallop flower with button. So pretty.
