Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge-March 2017!

Hi, Friends!

It's time once again for the Paper Sweeties Monthly Challenge!   And, I'm excited to announce that the winner will be awarded a $25 gift certificate to the store!  You can make a project and be inspired by anything in the photo...anything goes! 

This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my card made for Dies R Us Challenge!  And, here is my card for Paper Sweeties...

For my card, I was inspired by the chalkboard in the inspiration photo.  I used a new stamp set that will be released on 3-15-17. It is called You Warm my Heart!  It's a great new stamp set with cup, tea pot, two birds, and wonderful sentiments!  I hope you will love it just as I do!  Please join us for the challenge.  You can be inspired by anything in the photo.

I started with a white card base and paired it with kraft paper and Doodlebug paper.  As I mentioned above the birds, cup and sentiments are from the new set.  The flowers were colored with copics and die cut using Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter/Sweet Cuts-Basket Add on: Hoppy Easter.  The heart border was made using Sweet Cuts-Sweet Borders.  The sequins that were added are  Blue Raspberry.  Twine Cotton Candy to finish the card.

Project Supplies:  

Please hop along and view more inspiration from my teammates...
