Think Green at Scrapy Land

Today is my last post as a Scrapy Land Guest designer. I want to thank Anne Temple and the team members for making this such an enjoyable experience. Now on to the challenge. I don't usually have green as my prominent color so this was a challenge. In fact, I made three cards before I got one I liked.  I started with this beautiful die by Frantic Stamper. It cuts four frames and one rectangle in one pass. Pretty, right? Used some assorted greenery the flowers and added a Cheery Lynn Hugs sentiment. The dogwood blossom is from Susan's Gardens and  the rest of the flowers came from Wild Iris.  Of course, I had to add a butterfly.

Double D Easter Challenge

Look at this wonderful inspirational board.  I love the soft colors, bunnies, candles and crosses. I decided to take my inspiration from the draped cross in the bottom corner. I had this pretty cross by Taylored Expressions that was just perfect for this challenge.

I started with a Spellbinders die that I cut in white and backed in lilac. I stamped the top layer with a background script stamp from Gina K and sponged it in lavender while it was still in the die. I put the cross on top and use a Taylored Expressions die to mimic the scarf in the picture, mounted it on lilac card base, and added a few pearls and flowers to finish the project.  .

 The prize for this challenge is this cute stamp set.

 So head over to the Double D Challenge Blog and check out the designs from the team then make a project to link up.
