Double D Challenge - Think Spring

Hello friends.  Haven't had a chance to play with the challenges over at Double D lately, but couldn't resist their newest challenge and mood board with the theme Think Spring

Are you all craving Spring as much as I am?!!  It really hasn't been a terrible Winter in West Michigan...just really loooong!!  This beautiful mood board really made me think "Tulips", so out came my Tulip Time set from PTI!

I love this 3 step stamp set so you can achieve such depth of color, and since yellow makes me think Spring, I used Harvest Gold, Bright Buttercup, & Summer Sunrise inks to make my little bouquet of Tulips.  And how perfect is that sentiment for this challenge?!  A little coral butterfly, sequins, and bakers twine helped to finish this bright and cheery card.

Make sure you check out all the GORGEOUS inspiration cards from the DT right HERE and then play will definitely get you in the mood for Spring!!  

Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do!
