Paper Sweeties April Inspiration Challenge #18 - Sweet Treats

Happy April and Welcome SPRING!!  It's the beginning of a new month. That means a new challenge starts today at Paper Sweeties.   Yep!  You get a whole month to play!    We love seeing the projects you create with your Paper Sweeties stamps, and who knows?  You might just win a few more sets to play with!  Just link up your projects here!    There are always lots of projects to see for the challenges because the current design team as well as the alumni all make projects.  For me it's a chance to reconnect with friends and see what they've been up to.
Look at this great inspiration photo this month!  Did you know that Paper Sweeties has paper straws in their inventory?  They're not just for drinking from!  I added a few to my card below!  To get them nice and flat I placed them between the plates for my die cut machine and ran them through.   Success!  Super flat and ready to glue in place.  Paper Sweeties also recently added sequins to the store.  They're not your usual sequins.  These sequins are very shiny and flower shaped.  They are a little thicker than regular sequins and stand up a little higher too.    You can see them better in the close up at the top of the page.
Want to see more projects?  Here's a list of all the designers with projects for the latest challenge.
