Friday Friends with {Easter} Flair

TGIF! I think my sincerest hope for you on this first Friday of spring is... that it is or will be spring where you are soon! (I know, it's opposite below the Equator. Believe me, my readership there is small. :P) Perhaps because it continues to be so wintry in my backyard, I am in the mood to make spring cards. So today's Unity Friends with Flair card has spring colours, tulips, and will be one of my Easter cards:


I didn't think I'd be able to use the colour inspiration for this month's Unity {be inspired} Challenge, (so many!!!) but then Sizzix was nice enough to offer this free patterned paper download! It seemed to capture the spirit of the colours quite nicely. I also used the current card sketch. 
Since it's both a spring and an Easter card, I will be adding it to Simon Says Stamp's current challenge as well. And look! The patterned paper qualifies me for the current Moxie Fab World chevron challenge, too. 
If you're looking for some inspiration this weekend, be sure to check out all the Friends with Flair entries! 
















Supplies: white, Bazzill basics melon & Stampin Up certainly celery cardstock, Sizzix digital patterned paper, Unity stamps (Giving it all Meaning, sentiment from Sweet Paper Pals; tulips unknown), Memento bamboo leaves & Versamark inks, WOW white embossing powder, Laurentien markers, Spellbinders tulips border die, Twinery Caribbean twine, unknown flower brad, dimensionals

Beautiful card, Linds! You used both the sketch and colours perfectly. I love that die cut border and your tag is the cutest!

Julie Odil said...

Great card! You nailed the colors! I'm stumbling myself, trying to figure out how to use SO many. I might just opt for the sketch challenge and leave it at that. You did wonderfully! Soooo waiting for spring!

I really like the text tag going one way and the patterned paper stripes the other. Your combination of patterns and colours is lovely.

I entered this challenge last month but they never seemed to post a winner. Or did I just miss it somewhere?
