How beautiful is this!  The subtle pinks and greens remind us that spring is on it's way!  Not only can you draw inspiration from the colors, but the images as well.  Like the fruit, ferns, butterflies and florals.  Play with layering basic shapes and offset mats.  Think outside the box and explore your creativity!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Random-numbers

Terri E

Terri E. used emboss resist to recreate the softness found in the inspiration photo.  Her inking technique is perfectly executed and really brings out the floral image.

Diana L

Diana L. created this clean and simple butterfly card.  The Soft Stone background allows the small touches of color to really shine.

Wanda Guess

Wanda Guess used the new Painted Petals anniversary set to create this beautiful card.  I'm in love with all of the layering she did and the gingham patterned paper is such a nice touch.

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please email customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.  Thank you to everyone who joined us this month!  There were certainly some beautiful creations!
