It's Sunday and over at The Paper Players, the lovely Jaydee is our hostess this week and she has a fun new challenge for us. Although nice weather not the case everywhere...spring has definitely sprung here in Texas. The weather has been wonderful here over the past couple of days....windows open, temps in the mid-70's, lots of sunshine. I know we won't be celebrating that in July when it is 110 degrees, so time to enjoy it while we can.So, here is my card. The layout was inspired by an older sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping that I jotted down a while ago. Love their sketches! The color combo is Pool Party, So Saffron and Blushing Bride. The colors reminded me of spring. (...and for some reason I am on a kick with using yellow lately)
I stamped and embossed one of the flower images from the Mixed Bunch stamp set, then embossed some vellum with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I punched out three flowers with the coordinating Blossom punch then decorated the flower center. This flower has a lot of dimension "in-person" and was pretty simple to create. I made a bunch of these cards for my swaps with the Stamping Divas this month, as well.
I hope you can join us this week over at the Paper Players with your card celebrating the spring season. Please stop by and visit the rest of the gals on the Design Team to see what they have shared. We also are welcoming some new DT members this week, which is really exciting:

Next, I was fortunate enough to snap a shot of these sweet deer in the woods behind my house, last week. My Schnauzer, Emmmitt, is fascinated with the deer and likes to sneak under the fence to chase them so we have to keep a close eye on him when they are in the area.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a HAPPY day,
