Vivid Vases Greeting Card PP180

This is one of the new stamps in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog. I love it. It looks like spring to me! Many of you are wishing for spring right now (inches of snow in Georgia!?!). Will Phil see his shadow this year? or will he still be hibernating under inches of snow!?

Vivid Vases, Paper Players, Stamp with Trude, Stampin' Up!, greeting card
PP180
I love this sketch from the Paper Players. It isn't too complicated and is perfect for a quick card to let someone know that you are thinking of them or when you need to make a quick birthday card.
I like to sponge edges of elements. I do it quite often. I think it helps ease the eye from one layer to the next. Sometimes it provides definition to an element. I even sponged the outside edges of this card. It gives it a finished, framed look.

Check out all the entries on the Paper Players blog. Make sure you have plenty of time though, because you will want to browse the blogs of everyone that entered. Fun to see people's creative activities!
