Paper Pretties Monday

** Please scroll down for the Love to Create Challenge post **

Hi again!  Thanks for coming back for the Paper Pretties Monday post.  This week's challenge is called...


I think the word itself is open for interpretation.  It may lead you to play with flowers or plants images.  It may lead you play with pastel colors.  So with these thoughts in mind, you may be confused with my card.  I am playing along with challenge that said to do black and white with a splash of color.  Well, I wanted my splash of color to be yellow.  Yellow screams Spring to me, so I wanted everything else to only enhance and make that color pop!

This adorable image and sentiment is part of a new set called Rosebud.  He is sooo cute peeking out of the center of that rose.

I did use a sketch from The Sweet Stop to help me put the card together.  Their spin this week is to use punches or dies.  And as I mentioned earlier, the black and white with a splash of color came from Our Creative Corner.
