I feel like a ... spring chicken

It's Thursday ... time for another Pals Paper Arts challenge.  This week we have an inspiration photo to help us get started on creating a Spring, Easter, flower, hat, etc. card.

I decided to pull out my old faithful A Good Egg stamp set for this challenge.  Have to admit after that, I was stumped.  So I stamped, looked, crumpled my paper and threw it away.  This happened a couple of times and then I thought I'm just going with whatever I do next.  So, this is what happened my next time at stamping ...

Stamps:  A Good Egg
Paper:  White, Concord Crush
DSP:  Blushing Bride, Concord Crush
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Blushing Bride, Concord Crush
Accessories:  Stampin' Pastels, circle cutter, word window punch, corner rounder, sponge dauber, ribbon, scor-pal
All supplies are SU unless otherwise noted.

I found the directions for this little treat box on the Scor-Pal website. They had the measurements for three different sizes and this is the middle size.  Easy to make and great to hold some yummy Easter treats.  Here is a picture of the back ...


Along with the cute treat holder, I made a 3 x 3 card to accompany it. After all my fretting, I ended up liking the end result.

I hope you will find some time this week to play with the rest of the talented Design Team Pals.  Other good news ... we have Blog Candy to give away this week too! 

As always, thanks for stopping by and please let me know if I can help you in anyway.

Have a great day,
Pam~
