♥ Simon Says...Easter/Spring ♥

Hi there blog friends! Today starts a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This time we want to see your Easter and/or Spring creations! Can't wait to see all of the pretty pastels and cute images!!


This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Memory Box. Love their amazing dies and stamps! I chose this beautiful Dogwood Branch Stamp and these cute butterfly dies called Isabella and Pippi.


I stamped the Dogwood flower and branch onto a piece of vellum and then softly colored it in with some Pastel Chalks and then added a Small Liquid Pearl in the center. The wood grain paper is from the Crate Paper DIY Shop 6x6 Paper Pad and the 2 pastel papers are from the Carta Bella So Noted 6x6 Paper Pad. I finished off the card with some light green satin ribbon, paper doily and a Prima Crystal Heart.
♥ ETA: I forgot to mention that the "Welcome Spring" sentiment is from the C.C. Designs Eggstra Special Stamp set! ♥

And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!





Have a sweet day!

hugs...

I really like the contrast between the soft colors in your design and the rough texture of the wood print. Blessings!
