Creative Paper Trade + Paper Sweeties = FUN!

Hi ya' sweeties ... so happy you're here today!  I have some FUN news to share :)  Paper Sweeties is sponsoring the current challenge at The Creative Paper Trade - yippiee!!  I have been a long-time fan of Andrea's amazing work and was smitten with her unique take on inspiration challenges as soon as I saw the first one go live on her site!  I am beyond tickled to be partnering with Andrea for the next two weeks to sponsor challenge #4!!

For the current challenge, we are to be inspired by one, two or all three of these themes:

Colors- Green, Light Blue, Orange/Yellow, Purple

I took my inspiration from the 'hearts' and 'circles' themes and created a sweet little shabby card using the Little Wishes tag and sentiment set from Paper Sweeties!  I included a glittered chipboard heart, a circular shaped button, tag, jingle bells and pearls ... and die cut the card stock for the base of my card with a scalloped circle.

A couple more bits and bobs of treasures from my baskets -- some crocheted lace trim, trinket pins, pink paper flower, aqua felt leaves, button twine, digital print from Janet's Etsy shop and some french script text stamping complete my little creation today!

Please be sure to check out The Creative Paper Trade challenge #4 and play along for your chance to win TWO FREE STAMP SETS from Paper Sweeties!  I cannot wait to see how you'll be inspired and what you'll create!

Thank you for stopping by today ... have a wonderful stampy day my friends :)
