  • NOTE: In your card submission, please indicate which stamp sets you use!

The stamp sets that I have chosen to use for this project are:

Beautiful card! Fun challenge! Thanks for posting it a bit early!

Such a pretty card, Sean. Love your color combo and the 'slant' design ♥

Should the date above read March 1, not February.  I'd like to leave February and all this snow behind!!! :)  Thanks, Sean!  Lovely as usual!

That is a gorgeous card Sean. Glad to see someone else has trouble keeping the months straight. Awhile back I saw a post dated Jan. 29th and I thought how can that be, it isn't even that date yet and then after a few minutes it dawned on me No it is Feb. Time is flying. Any way I love your card and hope to get one made for this challenge!

I love your beautiful example card!  This is a fun challenge that will take a bit of thought.

Beautiful card design, Sean, love the color combination too! For a moment there I thought I was too late to enter this fun challenge, but I see it's just an oops.
Beautiful card - thinking I'm working on a card right now that will fit this challenge! Thanks for sharing!

Great challenge & I love your card! Wonderful design & colors!  :) 


Beautiful card! I love the sun shiny color it is so uplifting!
