A Touch of Spring...

Happy Friday! Are you ready for another challenge with Stamp Something? Janna is hosting this week, and she has chosen the following theme:

A touch of Spring

I don't know about you, but after all the snow we've been getting lately, a bit of spring sounds very appealing! Be sure to check out the Stamp Something blog to see what the rest of the dt has in store for you, and to check out how you can win a delightful prize from this week's sponsor, Whiff of Joy.

When I think of Spring, I tend to think of weddings, so I decided to create a cute little favor bag to show you today. The vellum bag is from a Martha Stewart wedding favor kit I've had kicking around forever and keep forgetting to use. I replaced the topper that came with it with a piece of pretty designer paper from my scrap pile and tied it all together with some pink grosgrain.

I used Wedding Carriage by Whiff of Joy for the tag. It was colored with copic markers and accented with Stardust Stickles. I cut it out with a circle Nestabilities die, and then layered it on a piece of SU Pink Pirouette that was cut with a Nestabilities Labels 5 die. The flower to the side was originally white, so I airbrushed it with the copic ABS and a R81 marker and added stickles to the petals for more interest.

Challenges I participated in with this project:
Stamp Something - touch of spring
A Spoonful of Sugar - springtime
Pink Elephant - ribbon
Our Creative Corner - making something new out of something old
Crafty Angels - flowers
Copic Creations - coloring embellies with your copics

**I'll be posting some blog candy this weekend to celebrate 20,000 hits, so be sure to stop back to check it out!**

Have a great weekend!
