Spring is Blossoming

You may remember that last week I posted a special pre-order that Stampin' Up! is offering our customers.   Go here to see the special.

Here is something I came up with using the Four Frames Stamp Set and a piece of the Paisley Petals Designer Series Paper from this special.  After this month, they won't be available until July 1.

These colors were perfect for the Stampin' B's challenge this week.  My friend Brenda, aka Benzi, is the hostess and she called for Navy & Green.  To make things more difficult interesting, she said to add at least one of the following; dots, stripes or plaid.

As you can see, I embossed the card with Polka Dots.  I know, it's not very masculine, but I think it works here.  And the layers framing the decorative paper make stripes.  Sorry Benzi, no plaid here.

Stamps:  Four Frames
Ink:  SU Markers (Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip)
Paper:  Whisper White, Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy, Paisley Petals DSP

Bonnie, this is great...plaids or not. Love the paisley dsp and the little bird is soooo cute. Very clever with the stripes.

You would not believe what all happened with my card for my own challenge when I was making it. I can look back and laugh now, but it wasn't so funny at the time. I'm so glad to see you joining the Stampin B's challenge.

It is time for bed. I'll be back tomorrow to check out your other cards I haven't seen yet.
