Spring is definitely in the air over at Addicted to Stamps today. We're up to our third Theme Challenge and this week it's Spring. I love Spring, it's my absolute favourite season of all - it helps that I don't suffer hayfever I guess.
Originally I had wanted to go a lovely daffodil colour - that to me is Spring all over. Couldn't go there though as my Bingo card last week was yellow and I'm already starting to think my cards are looking a bit same same lately. Then I decided orange - still nice and bright right? Well I've no clue how I ended up with the Melon Mambo in my hand but this is what happened lol.
I've been making a lot of square cards lately - that's because I've had a stash of PTI white c/s for some time and being US sized and quite sturdy I can get more use out of it this way rather than making an A5 card. Too many scraps otherwise. It is coming to an end I promise so not too many more square cards to come :).
I used the Blossoms 2 Nestabilities (that were a gift from BFF a couple of years back) to cut my flowers. I sponged all the edges and bent the petals up and down and all around - as much as a neat freak can. My mat is MM c/s with a layer of Pretty in Pink dsp.
Why don't you head over to the ATS Challenge blog and check out all the lovely Spring inspiration this week, and then get creating and link up. I would love lots more card ideas for my favourite season.
Actually how about a little blog candy? Tell me your favourite season and I'll draw a winner on the weekend (30 September) and send a little parcel of goodies out - couple of copic markers and prisma pencils, a roll of ribbon and a few other bits and pieces. Yay!
