Thoughts of Spring

Since today is the first day of spring, today's limited supplies challenge required you to create using the Soft Subtles color family and a flower as the main image.

Since I was using pastel colors, I used some sheer ribbon, pearls, and my Swiss Dots folder to keep the look soft. I also used my new oval Nesties--bought with a 40% off coupon at Hobby Lobby. Woohoo!

Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks (SU), Sunny Thinking (Hero Arts)
Paper: Pretty in Pink, PTI white

Ink: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Nestabilities Ovals, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, ribbon (Michaels), pearls (Kaiserscrapbook)
