Vintage {Spring}

My piece for Jen's SFYTT is actually a decoration for my bathroom. I know, that sounds weird, but it will be replacing this vintage Bingo card that I made all swanky for March/St. Patty's day that has been gracing my bathroom for the past month. No windows in the bathroom makes for bad lighting which means no picture for you to view in all its glory! Anyway...

I have a love/hate relationship with Spring. I love the warm weather, the season of Lent and anything "new" popping from the cold, dark earth, BUT....I don't like the mud or the wind that often times accompanies Spring. My card/decor version of Spring is an attempt to incorporate my love/hate elements into something "pretty".

I've spelled out "SPRING" in the six squares of Jen's sketch, incorporating fun things like: Damask Designs, stick pins, polka dot designer paper, satin ribbon and of course, a big ol' button. I've also included elements of Spring with images from Touch of Nature and Botanicals, both of which are retired SU! sets with which I'll probably never part. Finally, I used some of my new PTI Spring Moss card stock because it IS the perfect green for Spring, in my humble opinion!

Now, let's see what Jen, her guest designer Kimberly and the other SFYTT peeps have up their Spring-y sleeves with today's sketch:

Kelly--won't be playing today but be sure to check her out because she's the guest designer for PaperTrey Ink for April and May, congratulations!!

Have a great weekend all, and a blessed Easter too!

THUD!! Amy, this is beyond incredible! I squealed when I saw it! The colors, the way you incorporated all the different stamps so subtly, the letters, the bow and button with the stick pins - everything is flawless. Spectacular design! It looks like something you'd find in a boutique!!
