Thinking Spring (and Pink)

I've been playing with the colorful seasons suite this week and that means looking at all four seasons.  My card for this Paper Craft Crew challenge had me thinking spring (and pink)

The splatter dots in the background of the sketch instantly made me thin of the floral stamp from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.

I absolutely love how Stampin' Up! has their products organized in suites.  Not only are you sure everything of a specific color will coordinate beautifully (In this case Berry Burst), you are also sure that all the products in the suite will go together and make gorgeous cards.  For this card, I not only used the stamps out of the suite, but also the Designer Series Paper and the Glitter Enamel Dots.
It is always fun to have confidence that your products will coordinate.

The floral stamp not only made the pattern on the background of the card front, but carried into the card interior as well.

Make sure you head over to PCC272 to check out the inspiration cards by the design team as well as the other creative entries.
