2 Step Into Spring

Hi Stamping Friends!

Springtime is in full swing in my neck of the woods.  Just ask my kids who are suffering with horrible allergies this week!  Stampin' Up! has decided to celebrate spring with a special promotion on some of their Two Step Stampin' sets.  This special only lasts through the end of April, so be sure to order soon!  Today's card features one of the sets that are on sale, Fifth Avenue Floral.

This card fits three different challenges.  The sketch comes from my favorite Stampin' Up! online hangout STAMPIN' ADDICTS.  This is sketch SASC49.  Stampin' Addictsis  a great little community where everything is postively Stampin' Up!  If you are looking for fun ideas for certain SU! stamp sets, check out the Stampin' Addicts online gallery.  It is filled with lots of beautiful samples and it is organized by stamp set, so it is very user-friendly. 

The colors come from the COLOR THROWDOWN blog CTD87.  The colors are Pink, Gray, and Soft Olive.  The last challenges is for the PALS PAPER ARTS challenge blog PPA37.  This weeks challenge is a theme challenge and the theme is Flowers.  I have a feeling I'm going to more cards to post for that challenge!

The card base is Basic Gray, layered with Pretty In Pink and then layered with Certainly Celery.  The Celery layer is embossed with a NEW Impressions Folder that will be available May 1st from the Summer Mini Catalog.  It is called Square Lattice.  The stamp set is Fifth Avenue Floral and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  The bottom flower that is attached to the Basic Gray Satin ribbon is the Flower Burst Embosslit.


Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
