Create Along With Us - April 2017

Hello friends.  Playing along with Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us challenge, and this month I was really inspired by Nichole's card:

Lovely Friend card
  I love the simplicity and the soft blending, and then the tiny pops of brighter colors on the embossed images...SOOO pretty!  The little flowers and leaves reminded me a bit of the images from Doodlie-Do and I came up with this:


I think I may have gotten a little heavier handed with my blending, but I still really like how this turned out!  My sentiment is from Graceful Greetings II and I also used one of the dies from the Mix & Mat: Flourishes set.  I used a RV09 and YG63 Copic marker to fill in a bit of color on the embossed images.

Had to show a couple pictures of how cute my Carrot Treat Box's turned out:




I used the Orange Zest patterned paper for the boxes, and one of the tag dies that comes with the carrot die.  I didn't think I needed the Easter stamp set that coordinated with the carrot dies, and of course now I wish I had gotten it for the little bunny and sentiments that would have fit perfectly on the tag!  Oh well, live and learn!  I did find a little bunny from my stash (I think it was a Michael's $1 spot stamp quite a few years back!) and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I used green tulle to tie the top of the box closed and really like how it looks.  These were definitely a lot of fun to make and I'm looking forward to putting them on my daughter's table for Easter!

There is still time to play along with the Create Along With Us challenge...check it all out right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
