Paper Sweetie's March Inspiration Challenge #17-'Polka Dot Love'

Hi Friends!

It's time for another Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge!  Look at all those soft pretty colors in the photo.  Before you know it, it'll be time for Easter!

You have until the end of March to enter the challenge.  And, you can enter as many times as you wish.  Your inspiration can come from the photo and/or any of the colors.  The winner will receive a gift certificate for $20 and be invited to be guest designer for the following month.  So, friends, I cannot wait to see what you create for the challenge!

Here is what I came up with for the challenge for some inspiration...

I started with a white card base and layered with blue for the sky.  I colored Jake and Abigail with copics and used coordinating dies.  The clouds are from the stamp set Happy Fall Ya'll.  I added glitter and popped them up for dimension.  Jake's outfit and the little bunny are from the stamp set Hippity Hoppity.  Abigail's dress, basket, and sentiment is from the stamp set Jelly Bean Time.  And, the grass was made using Sweet Cuts-Thanks Snow Much.  More glitter was added to the bunny and Easter eggs.  Easter is later this year.  I'm so hoping that we have great weather on that day.  I'm so ready for some warm weather!

Please hop along for my fellow design team members have some wonderful creations!  Have fun!
