Think Spring

Happy Wednesday! I finally remembered what day it is this week. LOL! Mother Nature is playing cruel tricks on us. I knew, since the winter was so warm, we would pay for it later. Very cold and windy although we do have bright sunshine. I shouldn't complain. The east coast is so much worse than we are with all their snow. My prayers go out to all of you.
Don't you just love when a card comes together better than you expected? I have one of those today. I'm just really pleased with the whole card.


The image from Bugaboo Stamps is called Spring Block. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and the background with Copic B00 marker. The background is what I call "sloppy coloring" because it shows some white through and makes it really look like sky or clouds. I made an easel card and propped the easel with a flower I created from Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Flower Dies. The leaves are from Spellbinder's Foliage dies. The flower was inked with Picked Raspberry and the leaves with Peeled Paint. The sentiment is from a blog candy that just had a bunch of sentiments and no indication of where they are from. I stamped it with Stampin' Up Very Vanilla Pigment ink and then rounded the bottom corners with a corner rounder punch. I love the flower. I may have to make a card just with the flowers. The inside dotted paper is a scrap from my scrap box.
I am entering these challenges:

That's it for me today. I am off to watch the twins this evening. Since this is spring break week here, I would imagine everyone who left town for warmer environments is rejoicing that they aren't at home this week. Stay warm and toasty. Thanks for stopping by.
