It’s Sunday and time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. Claire wants us to celebrate Spring! Her Theme Challenge is “Spring Is In The Air”. With only two weeks of Winter left to go, think “Spring” and play along with us this week. Claire gave us lots of possibilities.
I’m counting down the days for more sunshine, birds chirping, flowers and trees beginning to bloom and colorful landscapes. So, let’s talk about today’s card.
I used the Quite Curvy Bundle with the bird theme. How I would use it was the big question. Of course, I’m using Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight again! I chose the Misty Moonlight leaf pattern and Bumblebee dandelion pattern from the Dandy Garden DSP pack.
Still practicing my coloring, I used mixes of Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends to color the die cut bird. The leaf branch die from the Curvy Dies was a perfect perch for my bird. It also gave me a bit of a pattern repeat with the Misty Moonlight patterned paper layer, so I knew it would work. Actually, this was the first time I noticed that little leaf branch die.
All I had left to do was decide on a layer for my sentiment and bird. I was thinking about a stitched rectangle, but thought the circle worked better. I noticed another pattern repeat with the circle pattern in the dandelion patterned paper. The sentiment is from the Quite Curvy stamp set.
So, pull out some patterned paper, add something Spring to a stitched shape and create something made with love to link up with us over at the Paper Players.
…the only limitation is your imagination!

Oh, Debbie! You and I were thinking along the same lines! I pulled out my “Curvy Birds”, too. Then opted to go with the butterfly, because my birthday friend loves butterflies. The enamel dots and the flower are the perfect accents. What a wonderful spring card you have created!
Ann, great minds think alike!! 🙂 This set seemed natural for the challenge. Thank you!
So super-sweet! Love this!
Thank you always, Brian.
I just love the colors!! beautiful card!
Blue and yellow in combination are my favorites, Laurie!
I love that you used non-pastels for the DSPs! They are a great choice to go with the sweet bird. I have definitely overlooked using the birds from this set on their own- fantastic layout to show them off! Have a great week!
Thank you Amanda. I always lean toward these blues and yellows. I have to push myself to use different colors.
Love that blue and yellow colour combo and the yellow central panel positively exudes sunny spring days, as does your sweet bluebird. Such a pretty card Debbie!
Thank you, Joanne. Always appreciate your comments. Best to you.
Debbie, I wish I would have come by sooner! These are our colors right now over at Color Hues and you could have linked up with us! Such a pretty card! Love the sweet bird and the enamel dots! Have a great day!
Hi Nancy. I have to pay attention to other challenges too. I would have loved to link up with you all! Thank you.
This is so pretty, Debbie; blue and yellow are certainly one of my favorite spring color palettes! And anything with a bird on it is a favorite in my eyes!!
Hi LeAnne. Thank you! I really have to push myself to use other colors. Those birds are cute as anything and gave me a chance to practice using my Blends.
Debbie, that dandelion DSP is fabulous. I love the layout and I love your wonderful bluebird. Thanks for reminding me that they will be back soon
So pretty, Debbie! I love the blue and yellow together and the mix of patterns is so perfect with that itty bitty bird. Such a fresh and fun card!
