Thinking of Spring 2.0....


Hi everyone! Seanie here! I'm happy to be here today hosting another Mod Squad challenge. I hope you get the chance to play along this week! I am giving away a $25 GINA K DESIGNS GIFT CERTIFICATE as the prize this week!

A few challenges back our friend Laurie was looking out her window at all of the snow and it got her thinking about spring. Well....I was doing the same thing! It has been a BRUTAL winter with this polar vortex and I have been in some serious need of some SPRING! So, this is kind of an extension of Laurie's challenge!
The rules for the challenge are simple.....create a spring themed card! Use spring colors, flowers, Easter theme or whatever represents spring to YOU! Just have fun and let's post lots of beautiful spring inspired creations!


The products I used to make this card are: 
  • “Folk Filigree” stamp set by Becky Oehlers for Gina K Designs
  • "Lots of Washi" stamp set by Beth Silaika for Gina K Designs
  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury 120 lb Base Weight White card stock
  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury 80 lb Layering Weight White card stock
  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Passionate Pink card stock
  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Innocent Pink card stock
  • Gina K Designs Color Companions Premium Dye Ink in Innocent Pink.
  • Gina K Designs Color Companions Premium Dye Ink in Passionate Pink.
Here are the details for playing along:
  • Please create a new card/project for each challenge.
  • You may use any vendors/products.
  • The host/hostess will choose 3 winners.
  • All 3 cards will be pinned to our Mod Squad Challenge Blog Pinterest Board (follow the link on the right column) and when there is a craft prize the host/hostess will choose one from among those 3 winning cards. The winners will be announced in a separate post that will go up on Tuesdays before the next challenge post goes up. Any winners of craft prizes have 1 week to respond to claim the prize. Prizes that are unclaimed will be offered again on another challenge.
  • Our challenges may be combined with up to 4 other challenges, so to be eligible for any prizes and Pinning you can have a total of 5 challenges you've entered. We rely on the honor system so please be honest.
  • The Mod Squad challenges are open until the following Monday night so we have time to choose and post winners.
  • Winners will be chosen from among the entries submitted in time.
  • Please link up your challenge entry using the linky at the end of the post and make sure you include the link to this challenge somewhere in your card description.
Prize for the challenge:
The winner of this challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate to Gina K Designs!
I can’t wait to see what you all create!
Thanks for playing along!
