Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge #42 - April 2016

 Happy April Fool's Day!

It's also TGIF!

What's better than that? ---
Except maybe that it's time for 
new monthly challenge

Check out this month's Inspirational photo:

How beautiful is that?  

You have the entire month of April to play along, using whatever supplies you have, but if you have Paper Sweeties stamps or sweet cuts, we would love to see them!

Just link up over a the Paper Sweeties blog and play along with us!  You might be our next winner of a $25 gift certificate to the PS Boutique and guest designer!  

Here is what I designed:

I decided to try a new (to me) technique, the bleach technique.  I used the stamp set, Pretty Posies, the Pretty Posies Sweet Cuts and the leaf from Bee Happy Stamps and Bee Happy Sweet Cuts.

Check out all my PS teamies' projects below, starting with our wonderfully talented leader and creator of Paper Sweeties, Debbie:

Mark your calendars also for April 13th - Paper Sweeties Plan Your Life Series April Reveal and April 14-16th for our Paper Sweeties April New Release Party!

I love how these flowers and leaves look on the darker background! I've always been afraid to use bleach. I always end up with spots on my clothes if I get near it. But I think I might have to give this a try! Have a great weekend!
