The Four Seasons Challenge - Spring Theme Continues

Hello and Happy Fri-YAY April 1st!  Today begins a new challenge month at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog with the Spring Theme continuing.  The inspiration board follows and used for inspiration...and that's no April Foolin'! 

My design team project was created using the Grateful Blooms Stamp and Coordinating Die Set from Concord & 9th.  I was inspired by the colors of the Rain Boots and Tulips pictured upper left of the inspiration board.

Using inks from Catherine Pooler, I stamped the floral image, which is a layering stamp, and created the background using lighter green and pink inks.

The focal image was die cut using the coordinating die, the sentiment is part of the stamp set and was also cut using coordinating dies.  I cut a thick banner from Watercolor themed cardstock and added Sping Leaves Faux Pearls from Kat Scrappiness.

The colors I've used just scream SPRING to me and soon we will be into Summer.  Please join us at The Four Seasons Challenge this month and show off your Spring designs.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
