Paper Sweeties » Blog » Spring has Sprung – CC#5

Hello crafty friends!  Welcome to the latest edition of The Card Concept Challenge!  We have a fresh color palette and inspiration photo for you to be inspired by this week!

CC#5

Besides the colors, I found inspiration in the shapes of the cake pops!  I recreated this shape with a bloom on a stem -- my stem created using a Green Apple Paper Straw!

I stamped the sweet little sentiment tag using the Little Wishes and Welcome Spring stamp sets from Paper Sweeties and then added a couple of beautiful, flower-shaped Silver Sequins to coordinate with the silver rhinestones on the pretty sheet music butterfly!

I added some beautiful lace trim and a snipett of velvet ribbon from The Ribbon Reel.  A cut a couple of leaves from glittered paper and then adhered all my elements to a piece of sheet music pattern paper.   The edges of my cardstock pieces were inked to create a time-worn look and machine zig-zag stitching was added to finish off the card.

Please be sure to visit The Card Concept to be inspired by the rest of the teamies projects this week ... and then I hope you'll have time to play along!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hugs - xoxox
