Papercraft Star Challenge #34

     This is our last week of Design Team Sponsorship by My Favorite Things at Papercraft Star.  The little tree and sentiment stamps I've used are part of the "Love Birds" set.  The tree was colored with Copic Markers. 
     I had some scraps left from some Dear Lizzy American Crafts papers I had used to make a mini album and among them was a sheet of sticky backed canvas.  It had this cute little multicolored banner on it so I cut it out to use on my card.
     I'm so ready for spring!  It's my favorite time of year.  I love when everything turns all green and smells fresh.

     For one more week our sponsor is Copic Markers.  They are also sponsoring our monthly Grand Prize so I hope you've been playing along this month for your chance to win.
     Please note that we are changing the time frame of the challenge a bit.  The linky will stay open through 9:00 pm. EST on SUNDAY.  Hopefully this will help you working ladies out with a little extra time to get a card into the challenge.  Voting time will also be extended to 6:00 am EST on Tuesday.
     Happy Wednesday!
