Default MAY10VSNI ~ Saturday, May 29 ~ 3:00pm EST ~ Dreaming of May

Title: Dreaming of May
Hostess: Petunia
Keyword: MAY10VSNI (BE CAREFUL! This is a tricky keyword!)
Day/Date: Saturday, May 29
Time: 3:00pm EST


I love the transition between seasons. Growing up in New England I was always so amazed to see that first bit of green poking up through the snow. There was something so magical about it.

My challenge for you is to create a card that reflects the transition from winter into spring.

Your card must have one (or more )of the following:


**change in colors from left to right**
**change in images from left to right**
**change in texture from left to right**


AND one of the following:

**an embellishment (eyelet, button, ribbon, flower, etc.)**
**a sentiment**
**patterned paper**


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

View the Gallery for this Challenge HERE.

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday May 31st.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword,
MAY10VSNI, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen.


Here's a little somethin' for inspiration and my sample:

What a great challenge!

I am sitting here wishing for sunshine. It's not cold, but, it is gray and has been for days.

Who else is around this afternoon?

I don't know, it seems kind of quiet. Perhaps everyone's taking advantage of the long weekend and getting out of town.

I didn't use any green on my Transitioning Text Boxed card, but does Taken With Teal count as a bluey-green? :P I completely forgot that bit - sorry!

There are no color restrictions - just a change in color as an option.

Your card is GORGEOUS! Thanks for playing!

Aww ty I thought this was going to be hard until I found this set and thought it would work so well. I was going to use either Trees or Flowers for a Season, which I think would work well too.

This is a great challenge and I can't wait to get to it! I am still waiting on DH to take up his parenting duties so I can play. He just arrived home from a camping trip (soaking wet) and has to get settled and then I can play!

When I saw this challenge I immediately thought of Branch Out! (even before I saw your card)

I loved this challenge with all the different options.
For the bottom part I took it to mean ONLY one of the following options, so I used 1 button!

Changing Colors Tree

Great challenge - thanks!

Here's my Dreaming of Spring.

Great card Joan! Petunia, this sounds like a wonderful challenge. I have to go think on it. I do have the seasonal trees by SU! Very old! Anyway, that is the first one I think of. Thank you for the challenge.

Thresa, Love your card!
Thank you Petunia for the challenge! Had fun with it. I hope the birds are in the right order! Hehe!

Well, here is mine! I found seasonal birds! So I used them.

Well, off to the next one! I think I am a little behind!

Fun challenge. I was wishing I had a caterpillar for a true transition. Rats! Instead, I just stamped some butterflies that represented spring to me. Here is my card:

Butterfly Thanks

This was really out of my comfort zone because I tend to use lots of embellishments. However I love the end result - so thanks so much for this challenge!

I think this may be out of the ordinary for this May theme, but here is the masculine card I came up with.
