I know what you're thinking....Spring is NOT quite here yet.

It's just time for another challenge over in The Cafe.
How fitting that our challenge begins this week
on Groundhog Day!
I would love it if Spring were here tomorrow, but I really
can't complain.  Our weather has been SO unseasonably
warm, so I will take it!

I used my favorite embossing folder from Sizzix to create the background
for this card.  Then it was a matter of just layering embellishments.
There is not one stamp on this card!
The sweet paper flower is from Girls' Paperie, the stem is
created using one of the brand new colors from The Twinery
called 'Flax' and the fun letters are from October Afternoon.

We are really happy to welcome Alica Thelin as our
newest design team member and am super-excited about
the creativity she will bring to our challenge.

This week's challenge is sponsored by Gina K Designs
Senior Designer, Melanie Muenchinger.
She is offering two beautiful stamp sets to this week's
challenge winner..a nearly $50 prize package!

So make sure you come by, check out all of the
lovely inspiration from our design team and play along.

Project Recipe: 
Embellishments: Flower Market paper flowers by Girls' Paperie
Baker's Twine in Flax by The Twinery
Mini-Market Letter stickers from October Afternoon
Tools: Stylized Flowers EF from Cuttlebug

Julie, I love your ingenuity on this, and the fact that there's not one stamp in sight on it. The embossing folder goes so well with the Girls' Paperie bloom, and the twine stem is so cute!
