Paris in the Springtime - Guest Designer for Scrapping4fun Challenge #38

Happy Thursday!

Today I have the honor of being a Guest Designer for Scrapping4fun Challenge #38 (thank you, Rachelle!). How did I get this honor? My vintage card I entered in Challenge #35 was chosen as a 'featured' card' and I was invited to be a Guest Designer for today's challenge!



The theme for Scrapping4fun's Challenge #38 is Spring/Easter.

I created a center step card:



I stamped the focal image, I Love Paris by Stampendous, twice in a gray ink and fussy-cut the flowers/leaves for some dimension. After die-cutting the image, I lightly sponged while it was still in the die.

Click here if you need cutting/scoring directions for a center step card.

Now for a side view:



What says Spring like flowers and butterflies?!?!? Rolled roses and butterflies along with some ruffled ribbon add to the soft look of the card. Pistachio Pudding and Pink Pirouette make a pretty color combination.

As this card will be sent to a friend for her birthday, I finished off the back:



Now I have plenty of space to write a nice birthday message.

I hope you enjoyed my center step card. Hop on over to the Scrapping4fun Challenge Blog for more inspiration for Challenge #38. The challenge is open for two weeks so you have plenty of time to participate and link up your Spring and/or Easter creation. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Lisa,
This is such a pretty card. I also received a beautiful birthday card from you that had pretty tan ribbon and sponging on the edges that gave the card so much depth.
