Hello everyone. I am sharing a new card with you that is spring inspired. I recently purchased some Maja Design papers and I just absolutely love them! I am also loving my Martha Stewart punch as well, I've used it a lot lately...some people love craft products of any kind!

When you are stuck for ideas or you need some new inspiration, the challenges on various blogs are fantastic to help you get going. I also like how you have to think and sometimes try something new. My card today follows the criteria for three challenges which are...

The sketch is from Mojo Monday...
the colours and elements follow The Ribbon Reel...
create a card / project using the PINK, YELLOW & AQUA plus  RIBBON & A FLOWER.

 and the theme is from JustRite Friday Challenge   "Suddenly Spring."

To create my horizontal border, I stamped and embossed using one of JustRite's border stamps. I used the front and back of a patterned paper and added some lace (I replaced the ribbon with lace).

For the banner, I used one of the pink Maja Designs papers and topped it with one of my laser cut border. I trimmed of parts of it so that it could fit nicely onto the banner. Next I added some flowers.....TTR askes for some yellow, so I added a yellow butterfly, flowers and a flourish. The butterfly also really refers to spring to me as well.


Paper: Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics 1933 and 1922, Stampin' Up! so saffron and whisper white, Kaisercraft duck egg

Stamps: JustRite Let Friendship Bloom and Classic scallop borders one

Ink: Victorian velvet distress ink, Versamark

Other: Art Stamps Australia filigree laser cut border, Spellbinders picot edge circles, standard circles one, classic scallop , Memory Box elegant scrollwork, Cheery Lynn small exotic butterfly, Hooked on Craft flowers, Martha Stewart flourish lace punch, lace, Stampin' Up! white embossing powder.
