Paper Players........Hello There!

Happy Wednesday Peeps!!!

Today I have a very fun very Springy card to share with you!
 I used the color challenge at The Paper Players this week for this card.

Gorgeous Spring Colors!
I am using a stamp that I am over the moon about. It is the "Blessed Easter" Single Stamp from Stampin Up. It is the new Occasions mini and I had so much fun coloring the tulips.
The stamp has a saying to the side of the tulips, I just masked that off with a post it note and stamped the tulips twice side by side and then another time on a scrap piece of card stock.  I used all of the challenge colors on the flowers and BG image. The tulip heads are colored with Primrose Petals and Crushed Curry and the leafs and stems are colored with the Pear Pizzazz. I then used the Coastal Cabana to outline around the flowers.

The tulips on the scrap piece was colored and then cut out and added to the round circle piece with dimesionals.
The sentiment is from the Timeless Talk stamp set. ( A set I have never inked, shame on me)
I used a base of white and then a layer of Coastal Cabana and then the two DSP's are from the Retro Fresh and the Fresh Prints paper packs. Interesting side note here, the lighter piece of DSP is from the Retro Fresh pack and the colors on the pack list Coastal Cabana as a coordinating color but this piece is much lighter, but it still matches. Anyway, just saying!
Hope you like it as much as I do, I am really enjoying the new flower sets. This one will no doubt be used alot here. I already have more tulips colored in some other colors so look for that to show up soon.

Thanks for stopping by!
