Challenges and awards....

Happy Friday Bloggers,
This week starts a new DT term at Paper Therapy, and, as you can see, we are chaning things up a little bit.  Challenges will now be the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month.  Now you have 2 weeks to create something fun for each challenge, and we will draw a prize winnder at the end of each month.  So, with that, here is this month's first challenge:

Welcome to the first challenge with the new design team! With Easter fast approaching, we'd like you to use a basket on your project this week! It doesn't have to be an actual basket...just use that as your inspiration...the weaving maybe?? Have your projects uploaded here by Wednesday, April 20th at midnight! The winner of this week's challenge will be posted on Friday, April 22nd! Have fun! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Here's my take on the challenge:
I LOVE flowers...can you tell?  I also love this time of year - it reminds of  my days as a florist, and I loved creating arrangements in baskets for people's spring parties and Easter lunches.  This week's card is based on these memories.  Hope you enjoy it!!

Supplies used:
Mint Green cardstock - Paper Source
Brown Cardstock - Bazzill
Flowers - Creative Memories

I was also gifted a Blog award from my sweet friend Kimberly.  Thanks so much Kimberly for this honor...Love your blog and all the lovely projects you create, and I have truly enjoyed getting to know you on PT. :)  Wanna see some of Kimberly's awesome work, check her out:
