S2G Twisted Thursday: Welcome Spring!

It's Twisted Thursday! The challenge this week is to make a "Spring" card, and the Twist is "Flowers". There so many Spring images in the S2G Shop to choose from, and each of the DT members got to pick which ones to work with this week. I have two projects to share with you today.


The first is a card I call "Spring Has Sprung". I chose the S2G digis "Pansy" and "Bugs". I remember using this same quote on bulletin boards during my teaching career. My BFF, Georgia, who is also a former teacher, once said that cards were like mini-bulletin boards. So I guess teaching prepared us for cardmaking! LOL! I embossed pink CS that was placed behind the pansy. Pop dots were placed under the cute little bugs to add dimension.
CS is Bazzill. DP is DCWV "Flower Shower" from The Spring Stack. Punch is MS, and ribbon is Hobby Lobby.
       

I used the same "Pansy" digi to make this plate. The image was colored with Vitrea Transparent Markers that I purchased at Michael's. This plate is dishwasher safe! I actually found it in the Bridal Section at Hobby Lobby. It's a dessert plate! I'll post a tutorial later this week and give you all the deets on how to make your own.
I hope you'll join us this week as we celebrate "Spring with Flowers". Post a direct link to your card on the S2G Challenge Blog. You could win your choice of two digis and a Winner's Badge for your blog! Speaking of winners....All of the March TT Winners and the April in Paris Blog Hop Winners are now posted on the Winners' Page. Check out the S2G Shop! Have you picked out any of the new "April in Paris" digis? I still have some on my "gotta have" list! Take a look at the DT's Blogs! Each of these talented ladies has chosen a Spring image for your viewing pleasure and inspiration. Their links are in my sidebar.  
My card fits these challenges:
1. My Time to Craft- Quick Quotes
2. Digital Tuesday- April Flowers
3. Kaboodle Doodles- Embossing
4. Pile It On- Spring
5. Saturday Challenge- A Day Out (Outside)
6. Handful of Stamps- Two DPs 
7. Magical Crafts Fortnightly Challenges- Something for the Girls
