Paper Sweeties' March Release Sneak Peek...Day 1

Hello and welcome to our Paper Sweeties' pre-release peeks! Actually, Debbie has been peeking these sets since March 1st in order to get orders fulfilled before our early Easter holiday this year. Today I'm showcasing a sentiment only set, this one is called Baskets and Bunnies, though my card has no baskets or bunnies on it, lol!

I knew that I wanted to use Maja Design's Walking in the Forest collection, though not really Easter colors per se...but soothing and serene none the less. I have a lot of cut up pieces of paper in this paper line, so I just started adding layers until they took over the card. The bow is 3 pieces of crinkled seam binding tied together with 1 big and 2 little flowers glued to it. The sentiment panel kept expanding too...every time I tried adding another worked (which, BTW, never happens...). So there you have it!
Here are the other Paper Sweeties' Design Team have to go see what they are peeking today:

and we're welcoming Michelle Bala to our team this month!
I'll be back tomorrow for with another card using some Paper Sweeties' stamps as inspiration.
