For this week’s color challenge I am your host! I selected three colors that I thought were very soft and sweet together as a trio! Each week the Pals Paper Arts Design Teams create fabulous samples and invites their readers to join in, be sure to come and join us using this fun color challenge!

PPA-297-Apr21I wanted to use some soft, but bright colors for today’s challenge. We haven’t had too much spring weather, but we finally seem to be getting some here in Kansas so when I was reaching for a Stamp Set to use today it simply had to be the Circle of Spring! I used the Wisteria Wonder, Daffodil Delight and Pool Party Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the wreath after stamping it in Basic Black Archival Ink. The lines are so crisp and clean with this ink – I love working with it! I wanted some shine on this card, so I used the Shimmer White Cardstock which is so much fun to see in action. 

For layering I went with the Pool Party as my cardstock base with a Wisteria Wonder mat and a Daffodil Delight background. It needed a touch of something else so I added the ‘Hello Spring‘ sentiment, also from the Circle of Spring Stamp Set.

Thank you for visiting my blog today I really had fun creating today’s challenge card. I hope you drop by soon and if you haven’t played along yet – be sure to join in on this week’s Pals Paper Arts Challenge! Have a wonderful day!
