I did this card for the Late Night Stampers challenge 59, using all spring colors. I layered Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery and Vanilla. The challenge called for pastels only, but I thought a couple of touches of Chocolate Chip would set off all the Pretty in Pink and Certainly Celery.
I'm really loving doing the LNS challenges these days -- there is so much great inspiration over there! Again, a big nod to my gal Tiffany, for her idea to layer and distress ds!
The flower was made by using the Pinking Hearts border punch on two different patterns from the Shades of Spring and Tea Party ds, then scoring them every 1/4" and pleating.

I've been stamping for about 12 years or so and have been an independent Stampin Up! demonstrator for 8 years. I don't do many workshops, but am mainly a hobbyist -- and love it!
Stamping has given me an outlet for my creativity, for which I am truly grateful. I'm also a member of the Paper Crafters Sampler and the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew design teams. I hope that you enjoy my blog!
