I've been trying to hold a Facebook contest every other month for 100 Proof Press. I'd like to think that slowly but surely I'll get more and more participants. Right now the theme is "Bloom." I made a quick card following the same idea as the last one. I love the sprout stamp, and I think the green looks nice with the pink flowers.
I'm not so crazy about the "LOVE" there, but I feel like it was needed. I again used the idea of taking photos as it progresses, so the second card is the final card - I went back at outlined the heart a little bit. And I think I like the final one better.... If you happen to stamp, and have some 100 Proof Press Stamps, you should stamp something blooming and share it on the Facebook page! Have a happy day... SPRING is here tomorrow!

I feel like sometimes when I'm working on something, it looks, OK but then the next thing you know I take it a step too far. Like I'll have a collage arranged in a way I kind of like, but then I go and find something else, stick it on the project and well, kind of ruin it. So I've devised a plan (we'll see how long I keep up with it) to take a photograph at the different steps, that way at least I have a version I'm OK with to share. I made a simple card but, then couldn't decide if it needed a sentiment, or more color... so here's three versions of the card. I actually think I like the end result best - that usually doesn't happen. What do you think?

So we'll see. Yeah, the final product is the one that has grown on me.
