Paper Sweeties Inspiration...A Dream

Hi friends! I'm back with day 2 of 4 of the Paper Sweeties' new release peeks! Today I'm showcasing a fun, whimsical set, full of super cute reminders that Spring is on it's way! Here's the card I made featuring the Make Today Beautiful set:

I started this card off with some beautiful 'In Bloom' papers from My Mind's Eye. Really I just started rearranging panels until the design came together. The hardest part, which say, took about 2 hours, was deciding on that organza flower. Initially I had a gray bow, then a pink/coral one, then a paper flower, then a button, then the ribbon again, Oy! The flower that ended up on there is from a dress shop in Manhattan...I bought a whole bunch of fabric flowers and leaves that are meant to go on some fancy dresses, but I think they look much better on my cards. :)

For more design inspiration from the Paper Sweeties' team, check out the Paper Sweeties' blog.
Thanks for visiting and I'll be back tomorrow with more PS inspiration!
