Sweet Sunday Spring

It's a BEAUTIFUL, sunny Sunday here in Pittsburgh and I was able to participate in two challenges today! That makes for a wonderful day all around! :)

I created this card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch and Nichole's color palette for her Spring Is in the Air Challenge. I used the Green Thumb stamp set from Papertrey Ink along with Melon Berry, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, Polka Dot Parade and Spring Moss paper and ink. This was one of the first Papertrey sets I bought and I STILL love it! I stamped the flowers in Melon Berry, Summer Sunrise and Lemon Tart in, then added the stems and leaves in Spring Moss. I used the Martha Stewart Fringe scissors to cut the "grass" and added clear Dew Drops to the centers of the flowers. I added some faux stitching with a white gel pen for a finishing touch to this happy, Spring card!

Hope you're having a sunny day! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Green Thumb (PTI); Ink- Melon Berry, Lemon Tart, Spring Moss, Summer Sunrise (PTI), Onyx Black (Versafine); Paper- Melon Berry, Lemon Tart, Spring Moss, Summer Sunrise, Polka Dot Parade (PTI); Accessories- paper piercer, white gel pen, Lemon Tart ribbon (PTI), Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), fringe scissors (Martha Stewart); Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
