Spring is definitely here in the South!  Colors are popping out everywhere, along with the dreaded pollen.  But the colors and new life are beautiful.  The Make My Monday Challenge Blog is on the nose with the theme this time.  It is Spring Colors.  And my card is all about the bright colors.

These bright papers were what I chose as my Spring Colors.  They are both from the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog.  These definitely gave me a few color choices to make.  I decided on Highland Heather as the card base, with the fun mix of DSP for the other layers.


I have to comment on the two circles of the sentiment layer.  These are the two New / Returning Circle Punches in the Online Exclusives available now.  They are the 1 3/4″ and 2″ Circle Punches.  I really love punches and these are actually two that I never got rid of.  These were so popular that they were out of stock for a bit, but are back in inventory now.

Stamps and Dies

The papers did not have quite enough flowers for my theme. LOL!!!!  I really just wanted to add something nice to the circle layers.  So I chose the Framed Florets Bundle.  The flowers are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored to somewhat match the floral paper.  The flowers are Fresh Freesia, with a Calypso Coral center, Mint Macaron leaves, and Parakeet Party for the fun balls.  This was die cut using the matching dies from the Framed Florets Dies.

To finish the card, I added the simple sentiment of Celebrate at the top of the White circle.  Then gave it some added definition with the 2022-2024 Matte Dots.  Adding some Starry Sky and Parakeet Party dots goes along with the prominant colors.
