SPDSS54 - Hello Friend!

I hope you're having a great day ! I'm really enjoying watching the yard come to life. Every day I step outside and there is something new to see from flowers to birds on the feeders. My son's not too crazy about having to cut the grass again - but at least he's earning his keep! LOL!!

Happy Wednesday! You know what that means right? Time for a new challenge at Sugar Pea Designs! There's one sweet prize up for grabs and who wouldn't want to win this?

The rules are very simple…
  • Create a new card or project using the sketch provided.
  • SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.
  • Upload to your blog or other Online Gallery using Keyword: SPDSS54 so that we may check out your beautiful work.
  • Add your name and link to your project in the InLinkz shown below.
  • One randomly selected winner will receive a $25 Gift Certificate to the SugarPea Designs store. However, if the winning entry features a SugarPea Designs stamp we will increase the prize to $75!
  • We will announce our Sweet Picks and our Main Winner at the end of each month.
  • The more times you play along during the month, the better chance you have of winning!

Here's the sketch for this week...

Lots of possibilities right? My mind immediately gravitated toward the Funky Wreath and Spring Addition. The new matching die cuts for the flowers make this even more fun to work with!

Whenever I get a new set of stamps and dies I cut and stamp loads of flowers in different colors. I'm feeling citrus colors lately - hence the orange and lemon!

I stamped the wreath in brown and then added lots of branches and leaves in different shades of green and a few berries in pink.  I topped the branches with die cut flowers.
I added some pink and orange polka dot pattern paper across the bottom of the page and topped it with a die cut border from Pretty Pink Posh.  Some Twinery Mandarin Twine topped with a shiny button give this a bit of a homespun feel. 

Turn to the left, now turn to the right!! LOL - couldn't resist one last photo!

Yet another perfect card from you. I think your 'design mind' must work a lot like my own -- because I just love your card layout choices, colour choices, and all the details. You have so many gorgeous cards. You are a huge inspiration to me! :) Thank you!
