CIC #102 - Welcome Spring

Hi everyone!

Did you remember to reset your clocks?  Daylight savings time kicks in today.  I totally forgot about that until a bit ago.  So, are you ready to be inspired by some more yummy cupcakes and stuff?

This weeks sponsor is Doodle Pantry.  They were kind enough to let us play with some of their images, and my gosh are they darling!  This week they are also being generous in donating a $10 gift certificate to our lucky winner.  You should go check them out.  They're adorable!

For this weeks inspiration photo, we had this to work with.  To check out this weeks challenge, click HERE.

Wow!  Talk about yum-o!  These were absolutely gorgeous to get inspiration from, and I had little trouble creating my project. 

I used Spring Song Birdies for my card, and I added the Welcome Spring sentiment from the same set.  This image was a lot of fun to color and I think it turned out really cute.  I like how the pop of black felt offsets the rest of the card.  I embossed all of the base layer together to get the hearts how I wanted them, and then added a butterfly, of course, to finish it off.  I'm also going to enter this into the following challenges.

Kaboodle Doodles #57 - Go Green (Use green)
Corrosive Challenge #106 - Going Green (Use green)
Crafty Cardmakers #41 - Fabric (I used felt)
Papertake Weekly 3/8 - Lemon Zingy (Use yellow)
The Pink Elephant #95 - Springtime
Monday Lunchtime Sketch #164 - Sketch

The other Sweeties have created some amazing projects for you today.  I can't wait for you to head over and check them out.
