Are you guys as ready for spring as I am? Well, today, there is a wonderful springy color, inspiration challenge that is happening over at Embellish Magazine that Julee, the owner and creator of Verve stamps is sponsoring. Here is the inspiration pic and I absolutely LOVE these colors!! Just looking at them is such a breath of fresh air - its like spring is just around the corner!! Woo-hoo!
I don't know how much more winter we can take (or rather, "I" can take!) the kids seem to LOVE it everytime it snows, but to me, this late in the winter season it means more shoveling, more de-icing, and more crazy driving! Oh to be a kid again and sip hot chocolate after a hard days work of sledding!!! lol!
Well, what a better way to "think spring" than to create something with these yummy colors! The challenge is also to do something with borders in your creation.I used Amber's beautiful sketch for Viva La Verve (Week 4) for this card using Julee's beautiful stamp set Thankful Hearts.
Paper: Prism cardstock (frosted yellow, papaya puree, razzelberry light, frosted kiwi)
Inks: Memento Rose bud
Stamps: Thankful Heart stamp set from Verve
Accessories: MS/EK success punches, circle punch, rounder, CB swiss dots, Marvy scalloped heart punch, embroidery thread from Bazzil, Sakura white glaze pen and buttons/ribbon from stash.
Here is another view of the card from the other side:
