The current challenge is "Shine Bright Like a Diamond." You are free to interpret that however you want.
The thing was, I was a bit stumped figuring out how to bring springtime and diamonds together on my card. As I made my way through the part of the Playhouse known as Mt. Paper, Hammy was trying to help with all sorts of ideas: springtime diamond ring engagements, springtime baseball diamonds, diamonds in the sky like Lucy, no, Lucy in the sky ... mercifully, I came across a wonderful SU floral paper which has pretty blossoms in a diamond pattern. Yay!
Next I checked the various sketch challenges for inspiration and I found this sketch from the wonderfully talented Jen B. at Freshly Made Sketches:
I used a Penny Black Stickeroo for the sweet vase of flowers, so I'm linking up with the Penny Black and More April challenge which is "Blossoms and Blooms."
And, as luck would have it, the fun Mod Squad Challenge is have a "Spring Color Challenge" where you are to incorporate at least three of the photo colors. I think I'm good to go.
If you would like more information about these challenges, the links will take you to the websites where you will find details on rules, sponsors, and prizes. I'm sorry I haven't had the time to make more cards incorporating bunnies, eggs, butterflies, wet watercoloring, or froggies in order to participate in some of my other favorite challenges, but I hope to be back to playing in them soon.
I'll see you in a few days. I'll be the one with chocolate all over my face.
