Spring Flutter

Despite the rainy weather we've been having, I've been inspired to create cards with bright, happy Spring colors! One of the stacks I go to all of the time for such papers is the Nana's Nursery Baby Girl Stack from Die Cut With a View. I just LOVE these papers. I decided to pair this cherry patterned paper with the polka dot pattern for my card using Flutter By from Paper Pretties. When this stamp set was first released, I could not stop using it. It was my absolute favorite. Since lots of other adorable Sophias have been released, this Sophia hasn't seen ink in a while. I thought I'd take care of that! :) I also used the new Blossom Nestabilities that I recently got. I thought they'd be perfect for the Spring feel of this card.

Don't forget that May 1st is our next Prettie Pajama Party! It starts at 8pm EST in the Paper Pretties forums. We'd LOVE for you to join us! Besides the challenges, chatter, and all around fun, we will also be releasing Hola Chica, TWO new Sophias, re-releasing Rainy Day Friend in rubber, and we will have a BRAND new set from a BRAND new artist!! Sneak peeks start on Wednesday April 29th!!

If you'd like to be our next Cutie Pie, you have until Thursday April 30th at 9pmEST to get your entries uploaded to the Cutie Pie gallery at the Paper Pretties website. The winner will not only get to call themselves a Cutie Pie, but they will also receive all the new release stamps!! Can't wait to see your creations! Thanks for stopping by!
