For those of you who follow my blog, you may have read the post last week where I had decided to apply for The Paper Players design team. They were having a design team call looking for two designers for the next three months and I thought I would just give it a shot and apply since I have been so inspired by sketches from The Paper Players on many occasions!
I was chosen! I can't even tell you how excited I was to find this out! The ladies have been so sweet in welcoming me to their team for the next three months and it is a complete HONOR to be "stamping" among these talented paper-artists. I have truly been inspired by these ladies and it is such a privilege for me to be a part of The Paper Players...even if it's just for a few months. This really couldn't have come at a better time. I think I really needed that boost of confidence. What a nice feeling to know that my hard work in putting together my "little work of art" is noticed. I also look forward to committing my time in visiting more blogs of those participating in the weekly challenges, passing along the encouragement I have been given. Thanks again, ladies!!
And, now it's time for the first sketch as being part of the design team. This week it is a theme challenge by Jaydee: Spring Has Sprung! The design possibilities are endless with this theme and that's something I loved about it. And, I am sooooooooo ready for Spring!
When I heard the word Spring, I instantly thought of birds and flowers! I decided to use one of my favorite sets lately (Best of Everything). I wanted the card to be bright and cheery and I knew Melon Mambo would be that perfect color! The Designer Series Paper is called Cheerful Treat (hostess exclusive). I definitely don't use it often enough, so this was the perfect card for it.
Stamp Set: Best of Everything, Pursuit of Happiness
Paper: Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Concord Crush, Cheerful Treat DSP
Ink: Melon Mambo, Concord Crush, Lucky Limeade
Accessories: Rhinestone Accents, 3/8" Lucky Limeade Ruffled ribbon, Dimensionals
Tools: 2-1/2" Circle punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch, Paper Snips
Take the time this week to create a Spring-themed card and join in the fun by linking up at The Paper Players! Head on over now to see what the other designers have in store for you this week and get inspired!
