May KSS Crew Challenge

It's time for a new Kitchen Sink Stamps Crew Challenge and this month I decided to give the Crew a sketch challenge.  The whole Crew will be sharing our cards using the sketch today so be sure to visit them!


We'd love to have you play along with our challenge this month!! Show us your ideas using this sketch and you could win a fabulous KSS prize!  See all the rules on the KSS blog.

For my card today I decided to use 3 Step Pansy - it always reminds me of Spring!!  I also used some fun Jillibean Soup dp.  I tried to make my pansies soft and light.  Here's my recipe:

Large Pansy: Step 4 - Baja Breeze, Step 3 - Soft Sky, Step 2 - Barely Banana (SU!), Step 1 - Fresh Snow (Papertrey Ink) , Step 5 - Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Small Pansy: Step 4 - Baja Breeze (2x), Step 3 - Baja Breeze, Step 2 - Soft Sky, Step 1 - Soft Sky, Step 5 - Rich Cocoa
Leaves: Step 3 - Ripe Avocado (PTI), Step 2 - Old Olive (SU!), Step 2, New Sprout (Memento)

I know you probably won't see blue flowers in real life but I thought they were pretty and soft to match the dp.

I really hope you give the sketch a try!  Have a great day!!
