Springy Thank You

Over at Paper Players, they are hosting a challenge that is right up my alley -- a spring thank you.  The rules are simple, and all we have to do is pull out spring colors and images.  So I dug out this stamp set that hasn't seen much action since last summer and stamped in Strawberry Slush.  I experimented with different ways to frame this image and settled on the ruffed stretch trim ribbon.  I just put Snail adhesive out to the edges of the oval and worked my way around, sticking the ribbon as I went.  The background needed to be simple so it wouldn't take away from the ruffle, and I settled on the Fancy Fan embossing folder for some background texture.  I recently learned that Sassy Salutations is a favorite stamp set of some of my stampers, and I have to say I love how it fills in the space on this card. A few little pearls added just the right amount of bling~ 


  1. Such a pretty stamp, wish it was in my collection! Your colors are certainly springlike and I love the ruffled ribbon, too. Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players, Rachel!
