Stampin Up, PPA 289, Featured Designer

It's spring!  At least it is here in AZ. But don't worry, it'll turn chilly again for a month or so, and May should be gorgeous, then it's just plain hot!

Anyway, I, yes little old Me, is the featured designer on PPA this week! How fun it that?!  Please come join us!  We have a color challenge, and if you don't like them, guess you can blame me.  I picked them out.

Here are the colors:
I used my favorite background stamp, Hardwood.  I love this stamp, and from what I see of all the cards by other people, I think a lot of them love it too. 
The wreath framelits originally came out as a bundle with a Christmas stamp set, then we got this pretty spring stamp set and another Christmas stamp set.  I have them all.

This stamp set is Circle of Spring, it also makes a really nice Easter card. The Framelits are called Wonderful Wreath Framelits, both are in your Annual catalog.  
I also used Timeless Textures for all the drops and a 3/16"silver brad and used my Wink of Stella pen on the popped up flowers and in a few other places as well.  It's such a subtle glittery shine it just doesn't pick up well on camera, but it sure looks fabulous in person.

I do hope you will play along with me, just click on the PPA banner to the right at the top.

To recap:
Circle of Spring stamps
Wonderful Wreath Framelits
Wink of Stella
Blender pen
Timeless Textures stamps
3/16" silver brad

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Lynn, your card is gorgeous! I love the hardwood Stampin' in Blushing Bride - it really creates a soft sweet background. The Spring wreath is one of the sets I can't wait to finally use! Great color choices, I had a blast with them!
