Spring Time Friends





It's time for another There's Magic In The Air with Paper Cupcakes Challenge.   Designers were allowed to choose a digi from Nina's store to work with this week, so you will see many different designs on our cards.  I am the Design Team Host this week and my challenge is to use "Lace and Circles" on your card.  You can use either paper punched or real lace, plus either the main image and/or greeting must be  in a circle.

The digi image I chose  is called "Spring Time Friends".  Isn't it cute.  I printed off the design then cut it out with a circle Nestie. The design was colored using Copic markers.   Both the peach and blue card stock are textured. The blue piece was embossed with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder.  The top piece of dp is from the Whimsy Matstack by DCWV.   A Martha Stewart punch was used for the peach lace trim and  the lacy heart.  I sponged around the edges of the heart with peach ink, then cut out a smaller peach heart with scissors to attach to the back of it so the design would show up well.   The greeting was stamped, punched, then sponged and put in the SU hardware.  To complete the card,  peach colored pearls were added as well has a Cuttlebug flourish. 

Be sure to go over to the TMITA/PCC blog to see all the other cards made by Nina's talented team.  Hope you will go over and download your free image and join in on the challenge.  Here are the items you could win this week if you submit an entry:



Thanks for stopping by.

Great design Selma. Love the colors and the attention to detail, so spring like. The sooner spring gets here the better as it's been a cold, snowy winter this year. "Hugs" Granny
