Hello crafty friends!  It’s that time of the month again … time for a NEW challenge at Paper Sweeties!  Before we share the new inspiration board, let’s congratulate last month’s challenge winner … the votes are in and I’m thrilled to announce our latest winner of the March challenge:  Sue Reynolds!

PS-Winner BadgePaper Sweeties hosts monthly challenges here on the blog and in our Facebook Group! Each 1st of the month we will have a brand new inspiration board to help spark your creativity!  It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:

1. CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration board using ANY of your favorite crafty supplies … you don’t have to use products from Paper Sweeties, but we would LOVE if you did!   Use this month’s board as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme … ANYTHING GOES!

2. POST a direct link to your project in the link gallery below (if using your blog, please link to your blog post not your entire blog so we can find your creation) or UPLOAD a photo of your project to our FACEBOOK GROUP CHALLENGE ALBUM .  No blog or not on Facebook, no problem — you can use any of our online galleries to add your project link:  Instagram, Flickr, Pinterest or Splitcoast Stampers – (keyword papersweeties).  Contact us if you have questions or need assistance!

3. LINK back to this blog post so your followers can find us too!  (Back linked posts will not be considered for the monthly prize).

Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish and combine with as many other challenges as you want!  The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The winner will be revealed on the 1st of each month!

This month’s inspiration board:

HOW will YOU be inspired this month — colors, theme, shapes, patterns?  I was inspired by the colors in the inspiration photo along with the springy theme in this month’s beautiful photo!  (CLICK on the photos for close up views):

I am sneaking a *new* Stamp set and Sweet Cuts die set that will be releasing in the Paper Sweeties boutique on the 15th of the month … you’re going to LOVE the sweet sentiments in this stamp set and fall head over heels with our amazing scallop frame dies!  I created a sweet shaker card using some of our *new* Latte Coffee Sequins.  The adorable little bunny was stamped using the Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter stamp set and cut using the Basket Add-on: Hoppy Easter Sweet Cuts set, and the cup was stamped on burlap using the Eat Cake and Eat Cake Sweet Cuts sets!
