Crafting again - at least for today!!

Actually, I did some crafting yesterday - so what I am going to show you right now is from yesterday. A few weeks ago, I was working with packages of retired DSP from Stampin' Up! Well, I am still doing that - so over the next few days, you are going to see ALOT of this particular DSP called Cottage Wall. It is a lovely paper that coordinates with Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry and Orchid Opulence (retired). The current catalog has this same design but with colors that coordinate with Poppy Parade (InColor), Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait (also InColors). I chose my layout from Stamping 411 sketch challenge #190. I also used the set Easter Blossoms from the Occasions Mini catalog. I double stamped the branch - you have to look closely to see that. Then I stamped the sentiment and added my ribbon - which is certainly celery satin ribbon - I don't have any old olive or white ribbon - but this one coordinated close enough. I like the way this one turned out with such simplicity. This set really lends itself to doing a quick and easy card.
So, I encourage you - choose a DSP, grab some coordinating cardstock and this Beautiful set and get going on those Springtime and Easter cards.
Come back later to see what I am able to accomplish TODAY!!

Paula, I'm loving this card! Monochromatics are my just my absolute favorite. Ahhh, such a touch of spring on this cold New England day. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

I love these colours & that bow is magnificent. The double stamping is so effective too. Nice to see you've had a chance to play.
