Papertrey Posse March Petite Challenge

This is the first month I have participated in the Papertrey Posse Petite Challenge.  Becky has challenged us to make a Spring card.  As it turns out, one of the cards that I submitted for the PaperCraft Sketch challenge was absolutely perfect for a Spring card.  It was based on the sketch above:
Here is the card I made: 
Nothing says Spring to me more than purple and yellow.  This card used Love Lives Here stamps and dies, Egg Hunt patterned paper, twine,  some lace and some little mini clothespins colored with copic markers.  This card is 3.5" x 7" and is quite sparkly in person.  Those little houses are such fun to stamp and cut out.  I have found they look every bit as good cut from patterned paper as they do stamped with ink.  This was the perfect day to post this card, the weather here in CA is absolutely beautiful.

Good Golly! This is so pretty Cathy! Your card totally speaks spring from each and every glorious corner. I really have no idea what is happening with Paper Craft Sketch. I think they are going to end up with a pile of ugly cards ;) because they certainly let the good ones go. Their loss is certainly our gain. I'd love each one of those quaint little houses to be snug in my managery to be admired for all time. Very special indeed.

This is stunningly fabulous!

Cathy, this is as cute as can be!!! Love those darling houses hung on clothespins, so creative!
