Petite Blooms for Stampin’ Celebration!

Happy Monday everyone! It actually feels like Spring outside today and the snow is almost gone!! I couldn’t be happier to say goodbye to Winter and can’t wait to start spending more time outside!!

We have a fun, new sketch challenge for you today, at Stampin’ Celebration!

DSCN1516This was a fun sketch to play with and although I chose to go with a subtle background, it would be a great one for showing off a fabulous piece of patterned paper!

The  inspiration for the colour scheme, comes from the current colour challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.

HSS COLOR CHALLENGE-001

Our challenge is open until Friday, April 29th, at 9pm EST, so there’s plenty of time to play along.

Please head on over to the Stampin’ Celebration blog and check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to love all of their creations!

And as with any challenge, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • Feel free to use any brand of product you may have in your Stash.
  • We ask that you create a new project for this challenge and add a link to our blog or use the challenge graphic in your post.
  • Please link directly to the post for this challenge, not your entire blog (so we can find your project better)
  • Please limit the combined challenges on your project to no more then 4 including ours.
  • And Have Fun!!!

DSCN1214Our inspiration photo is spot on today, as it is Remembrance Day here in Canada. So although I don’t have any Remembrance type stamps sets, I really wanted to create a card to reflect this very important day.  So I used the Wondrous Wreath set and some small punches to create a wreath with poppies

I used the current sketch challenge at Can You Case It? as the inspiration for the layout.
