Happy Spring Card

Happy Spring Card
Stampin' for the Weekend has a springtime challenge going on. I had the perfect card made for it too that had not been posted. I submitted it to the Paper Crafts Go-To Sketches/Volume 2 call this week but alas it was "rejected." So when I saw the Stampin'for the Weekend challenge I knew I could use it for that. The patterned paper is by Graphic 45 from their new "Once Upon A Springtime" collection. The diecut letters are by Sizzix (a new set that I am in "love" with called Butterfly Kisses.) I used white chipboard by Grafix for those letters. The word "happy" is a rubber stamp by The {Stamps} Of Life while the brads are by American Crafts. I finished it off with some baker's twine by Pebbles. Although this card did not make the "cut" for the Paper Crafts call, I did get a "happy email" from them for another card. (The card selected was based on sketch 71.) :) They received close to 3,000 entries for this call and had 288 spots to fill so I felt quite honored to have a card chosen. Thanks for stopping by and visit again soon. :)

Congratulations on having a card selected! How funny, my accepted card is for sketch #71, too! Can't wait to see your take on it!

The image you used for this card is so beautiful, and I love the big sentiment and baker's twine. Very pretty!
