Spring has Sprung!!

Spring really has Sprung in more ways than one!!  

For starters, I have tons of pollen building up on my car and causing allergy attacks that you can't believe and everything is turning green and finally getting warm again!!  But secondly, I also have a card to show you that literally has some SPRING to it!!

Today is Wednesday which means that the Whimsie Doodles Paper Craft Planet Group has issued a new weekly challenge!!  This week Joni has challenged us to make a Spring Card!!  They are really cool and not too hard to make.  All the directions on how to make them (along with a video) can be found HERE in the SCS Resource center!  I hope you will give one  a try and share it with us on the PCP Forum HERE.

Here is a shot of the card when it is almost flat.  The way it would be inside the envelope!

And this is what it looks like when it is sprung into action!!

I used the Easter Basket stamp from Whimsie Doodles for the image and then added the adorable Basket Case sentiment from the Easter Sentiments set.  Both of these stamps are available only in rubber form.  I colored the basket in using Copic markers to coordinate with the Bo Bunny paper from the Kitchen Spice line.

I added two rows of grass from a MS punch, one under and one over the basket to add dimension.  Then I also added an accent ribbon using MS's dotted blue  ribbon.  I popped the basket up a bit using pop dots!

Here is a better view of how the card pops up when it is fully opened.  Isn't it so cute?  I had never seen this fold technique before and really love how it looks!! I will definitely be doing this again!!

If you want to play along with us, please check out the SCS Resources page I linked above and then load your creation to the PCP and/or SCS Galleries using the keywords, whimsiedoodles and WWC25 (Whimsie Wednesday Challenge 25.)

Some exciting news for Whimsie Doodles is that the 
new releases for April 
will be revealed NEXT WEEK!! 

So be sure to come by starting on Monday for some Sneak Peeks of what is to come!!

Also, be sure to stop by tomorrow when we will be 
celebrating Hip Hop coming back to Unity!!  

Both Unity and Ippity DT members will be involved!! 
There will be lots of prizes, chatting and fun so be sure to check it out!!  Woot woot!!

Have a wonderful rest of the day and may your bucket be overflowing with the beauty and promise of Spring!
