Reds & Yellows & Greens, oh my!!!!

I just ordered some DP from the Basic Gray series.....I'm absolutely in love with the bright and vibrant colours. Each sheet is so unique in itself, and lends such a great dimension to the card. I got to work as soon as I opened that box!!

I've attempted a Pals Paper Arts Sketch after a really long time. I know that the team primarily use SU supplies, so I tried to incorporate at least one SU stamp; the flower. Here's my interpretation of the sketch...

My next card is for the Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge #11. I really liked their sketch as well, since it was open to so many different interpretations.

The "poofy flowers" are something I learned to make on the Raspberry Suite blog site by the very creative and talented Dawn McVey. You can go here to watch the tutorial video. I used tissue paper that I recovered from my son's birthday gift bags!! Trying to "go green"!!!

This card can be entered in the following challenges as well:
1. Crafty Creations Challenge 59: Spots & Dots
2. Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge 35: Easter
3. Our Creative Corner: Think Easter
4. Cute Card Thursday Challenge 104: Happy Anniversary
5. Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog: Another birthday challenge
6. Creative Card Crew Challenge 46: Going Dotty
7. Spoon full of sugar Challenge 95: Easter
8. Bee Crafty Challenge 26: Spring

It's funny how I'm able to find so many challenges for my one card these days!! Well, I can't wait to create more with my new DP!!! Namaste!!
