Grateful Bunch for a Happy Easter

Today is another Pals Paper Arts color challenge. This week I am the hostess for our challenge. I selected a soft Spring/Easter color palette.


I typically choose to work with brighter, bolder color palettes. I enjoyed working with this subtle palette very much.

I adore the Grateful Bunch stamp set and coordinating Blossom Bunch Punch (say that three times fast). The butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set and Bitty Butterfly Punch. The sentiment is from the Circle of Spring stamp set. The It’s My Party Enamel Dots are the finishing touch to the flowers

After finishing my card I wondered if it was too subtle so I tried another version.

I stamped the flowers in Blushing Bride ink onto Blushing Bride card stock. I watercolored the leaves and then outlined with my Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker.

I would love to see you play along with the Color Challenge over at the Pals Paper Arts this week. You don’t need a blog to play, just use Pinterest to post your creation. Don’t forget to stop by and see what the rest of the design team did with the challenge.

Your comments mean a lot to me. I would like to know which design you like best?

May you enjoy the wonders of Spring and have a Happy Easter.
