Blogger's Challenge #40


I can't believe that I haven't posted anything since the last challenge! It's was Spring Break here and having all 5 kids home all week didn't allow Mommy very much time to play! Ha ha! This week's challenge was "Spring Flowers". I was trying to do something bright and cheery without using the usual "Spring colors" - I'm not sure that I achieved that! Although I like the contrast of the colors, I'm not sure I would call it "bright and cheery". Oh well! Sometimes things just don't turn out as well on paper as they do in your head! Happy Spring everyone!
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks: Basic Black, Tempting Turquoise, Craft White, Versamark
Stamps: Spring Solitude (Hostess set), Three For You, Polka Dots & Paisley
Other: Three for you Punch, Silver Brads, Turquoise Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder
