I'm Nutty!

It's another terrific week with a brand new challenge at

and these colors are absolutely stunning !
My card is a bit of a departure for me but I had fun
designing it once I knew the direction I was headed.

Each of our designers were given stamps to play with from 
our sponsor this week, Gel-`a-tins.
I decided to do a play on the actual sentiment on the stamp by
re-creating it elsewhere on the card too.
The giant alpha die has been in my stash for a l.o.n.g. time,
so I have no idea where it's from.  I inked it up to match the
cherry blossom color for the challenge and heat embossed 
with clear powder.  I cut the clouds & leaves using dies from
Lil' Inker Designs.
The #4 is from SRM Stickers.
From there, I just layered . . . easy-peasy.

A big thanks to

for providing fun stamps for our team and for
sharing an aMAZing prize package this week.

I hope you will take time to play along with us
and I'll see you in The Play Date Cafe
