Spring has Sprung – CC#5

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!


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
