I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

"Springtime" for Sweet Stop Sketch # 96

I have one more card to share this afternoon. Since I still had the February Key Ingredients kit on my desk I decided to use it to make a card for this week's Sweet Stop sketch challenge. Besides the sketch, this week there was an addition to the challenge to make a spring themed card. I pulled out one of my new Stampin' Up sets called Easter Blessings. Like many, I was attracted to the little girl silhouette stamp included in this set from the current Occasions Mini catalog. I've seen it used on many cards lately around blog land and they are all so cute. Here is my version today:

Again, all of the card stock and patterned paper are from the TE February key Ingredients kit, as well as the paper flowers and brads. Labels 9 Nestabilities was used to cut out the image instead of using a square as in the sketch.

Stamps: Easter Blossoms from Stampin' Up
Card stock: light blue and choice buttercream from Feb KI set
Patterned paper: Lush by My Mind's Eye
Ink: SU early expresso
Other: SU oval and corner rounder punches, paper flowers and brads from the Feb KI kit, Labels 9 Nesties, the big shot, SU pop up glue dots, and dimensionals

That's all from me today. I'm looking forward to the Sweet Sunday Sketch and Curtain Call Color challenges tomorrow morning, so I'll be back tomorrow after the cards are made.
