Paper Sweeties April Inspiration Challenge #30-Hoppy Easter

It is the first of the month, so that means it is time for the

Paper Sweeties April Inspiration Challenge #30 
 'Hoppy Easter'





Here is our Inspiration Photo:



I am in love with the colors for this challenge!


Each month on the 1st we will have a brand new inspiration board to help spark your creativity. You can enter as many times as you wish throughout the month — the moretimes you enter, the more chances you’ll have to win!

It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:


1. CREATE a NEW project based on the current inspiration board using any of your favorite crafty supplies — receive an EXTRA VOTE if you use something fromPaperSweeties such as a stamp, die or embellishment!  If you don’t have any stamps from Paper Sweeties yet, we have some complimentary digital images for you to try out!  Use this month’s board as a starting point for your project — be inspired by one or more of the colors, shapes, theme — anything goes!


2. POST a DIRECT LINK to your project in our link gallery below — please link to your project post (not your entire blog) so we can easily find your creation. You do not need to have a blog to enter — you can use any of our online galleries to upload your project: Flickr, PinterestFacebook or Splitcoast Stampers (keyword papersweeties)!


3. LINK back to the blog post so your readers can easily find us!

Our challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish and combine with as many other challenges as you want! The challenges will end at 12 pm EST on the last day of each month. The new challenge and winner will be revealed on the 1st of each month!
 


Here is my card:




Since we don't have any small children in our family at the moment,  I decided to use the colors of the challenge photo for inspiration rather than chicks and bunnies. I wanted to make a spring flowery card. I can't get enough of the Pretty Posie stamp set that was released in February. LOVE!!!!!
I mixed and matched lots of different Paper Sweeties stamps to make this fun background. I have them all listed below in the ingredient list. I hope you can see that I used lots of Stickles, Glossy Accents and Liquid pearl to dress up my card. 

Now I hope you will join us for this challenge.

And don’t forget to link up your projects for the April Inspiration Challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree to the Paper Sweeties boutique and an invitation to be a guest designer for an upcoming challenge!

Beautiful pink & sparkling posies. Love the way you've used these so dimensionally to create that pretty background. Very spring-ish and fresh & I'm liking the way you've used the button to hold those sentiment banners! TFS - & hope you had a fine Easter holiday.
