Stamps R Us Challenge #17–Celebrate Spring!

Can you believe it, it’s March 21st already!!  Are you ready for another great challenge with us at Stamps R Us?  We are being sponsored this time by Tiffany Doodle Stamps.  I hope you will check them out, there are lots and lots of gorgeous digital images to chose from!  The theme this week, is to create a card/project to Celebrate Spring, and I don’t know about you, but I am so glad winter is finally over in my neck of the woods!

I am using one of the image from Tiffany Doodle Stamps, and it’s the “Dogwood Branch”.


I really loved this image when I saw it, and I thought it would be beautiful in blue.  I colored the image with copics, and then layered it on baby blue and cream card stock.  I used a embossing folder from Cuttlebug, and a border punch by Martha Stewart.  The lace and butterfly are finds from the dollar store.  The butterfly was originally white, but I used my copics to color it blue.  The designer paper is from previous left overs, sorry I can’t remember who makes it.  I found the sentiment on the Create With TLC blog.
