Razzleberry challenge

I was very unsure of the colours The Paper Players chose this week but surprisingly they look great together.

This card is not what I originally intended, due to the fact that I found the embossed piece in the Pool Party folder, so like Topsy it just grew from there.

All supplies are from Stampin' Up:
Stamps:  Elements of Style;  Made for You
Card:  Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party; Whisper White; Basic Black
Tools:  Big Shot; punches

Framed bird

Sunny challenges are looking for entries using Framelits this time, so I thought it was time I joined in.
While I do love the look of clean and simple cards, I find them much harder to produce and usually go back to my comfort zone and create the layered look - lots and lots of layers - and this one is no exception, in fact I was running out of room for embellishments.
Since joining Stampin' Up early last year I have totally ignored the huge stash of papers I had accumulated but this time I needed to use some of them to keep the lilac theme happening.  So, mostly SU, but a few odds and sods.
Edited to add:  My card was chosen this week - thank you !

Sweet Pacific home

Pacific Point is certainly a dynamic colour and teamed with Old Olive it is even better.

The team at Dynamic Duos have chosen those two colours for this week's challenge.
My card is looking VERY blue here - the centre panel and the background were Whisper White but I guess all that blue has just taken over.  The olive trees have faded into insignificance as well.
All supplies used in this card are from Stampin' Up.
This card was made for friends who have just moved house.

Spring has sprung ..

Certainly Spring has arrived in Melbourne these last few days and the perfume of all the blossoms and flowers is just wonderful. 

What a great photo for inspiration to entice an entry into Scrapbook Boutique's challenge for September.

Enter Our Challenge - starts 10th each month
There is no better way to celebrate Spring than sharing a cuppa with a friend and I thought these lovely spring flowers on the designer paper were perfect for the occasion. 
Hope your day has a lovely spring in it.
