April Design Team Work - Day #3

Greetings Readers,

I'm so excited about today's "card" that I am going to jump right into the details.  

April seems to open the door and invite us outside! This month let's focus on welcoming spring's attitude back into our hearts.

Holiday Focus: Choose one of the following occasions and ahow a card, an ensemble, an SB page, or a decor item! Earth Day, Historic Garden Week, Easter, National Egg Salad Week, Go Fly a Kite Day.

As I was reading the Holiday Focus challenge and saw the words "Historic Garden Week" I knew exactly what I wanted to make!! This challenge was begging for a Flower Pot Pocket Card so I was happy to oblige. Since y'all know how much I LOVE polka dots, I decided to make a cheery Daffodil Delight pot and then embellish it with Bermuda Bay polka dots that I punched out with my 1/4" Circle Punch. I used the Flower Shop stamp set with the coordinating Pansy Punch to make my flowers and then finished them off with Basic Pearls. When my pot was finished it still needed a little "something" so I decided to add the Daffodil Delight Button and some Baker's Twine. I *LOVE* how bright and cheery it turned out!

If you'd like to make your own flower pot pocket card, you can find the instructions HERE. I'd love to see what you create, so please leave a link to your creation in the comments section below.

That's it for today so I will be back tomorrow with my fourth and final April DT project.

Hugs, Smiles, Blessings, and Happy Stampin'!
