Happy 1st Spring Monday!

I love finding something to celebrate everyday!  

Today it would be the fact

that it's

time for another


This week is a color challenge ---

And we are leaving it up to you--- 

Use your favorite color combo!

Here is my project using 

Sage green/Purple


STAMPS: Flower (Hero Arts); Sentiment (Stampin Up!).
PAPER: Sage cardstock base; DP - Stash.
INK: Sweet Plum (Momento).
EXTRAS: Scallop square die (Spellbinders); Scallop border die (Lil Inker Designs); Leaf flourish (My Favorite Things); Flowers (Prima); satin white ribbon.  Diamond Stickles.

I've had the patterned paper I used forever.  I think it was part of a pack from a long time ago.  I recently sorted some of my paper and found it along with lots of other patterned paper I had sorted ions ago for different projects and then forgot about them.  I originally had another pattern paired with this one but once the card began to evolve, I decided not to use it. I wanted to use the new border die I got from Lil' Inker Designs and wound up creating the frame you see here as background.  I was going to bling it up a bit but when I finished, but took a step back and decided again not to.  I did put Diamond Stickles on the flower petals.

For Following Challenges:

Pink Elephant Blessings!
