Challenge Project: Spring

This challenge was right up my alley. I love the colors that Diane gave us to work with this week. The challenge was to create a layout, card, or other paper craft using a spring theme and we were limited to using the colors pink, blue, green, purple, yellow, orange, and white. Here is my take on this weeks challenge. I hope you'll play along with us this week for this awesome challenge!

I decided to make an Easter card for a dear friend that lives down in Sterrite. (I'm sure I misspelled that. So glad I have it written down in my address book). I started with a white base and stamped the saying "happy easter to my peeps," across the base in different colors. I then cut out three eggs from the Art Philosophy cartridge at 2.5". I stamped different "flower" type designs from the Miracle stamp set. Then using the My Peeps set again I stamped three bunnies on the pink cardstock and cut them out. (these are so cute, they aren't actually bunnies, they are actually peeps - you know the marshmallow candy that's awesome as a kid and gross as an adult). Using the new stitching ruler from ctmh, I punch holes to do a zigzag stitch then cut out the top of the egg using these holes as guides. The peeps are adhered to the back of the eggs as well as the tops and then using pop dots I popped up the yellow and green egg to make it look more realistic.

Hope you enjoyed my project for this challenge. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
