thinking of spring...

Hello fellow bloggers.

As I sit here in mt craft room looking out of the window at the damp and dreary weather, I can't help thinking of spring... it seems such a long time before we'll start to see flowers and sunshine again! To try and remember what spring feels like I've made this card in lovely bright and cheerful colours and even if the weather is rubbish, I'm still smiling!

She's a digi stamp from All Dressed up called 'I love my puppy'  shes coloured with promarkers (almond, dusky pink and sun kissed pink for the skin, tan, caramel, henna, shale and coco for her hair, her clothes are blossom, rose pink, shocking pink, aqua marine, sky blue, flowers the same as the clothes and canary yellow, meadow green, moss)  and she finished with bright pink glitter on the spots on her dress.

I've layered her on some pink mirri card and used co-ordinating ribbons.  The sentiment was computer generated, and I copied the flowers from the image and coloured them too.

Its a CAS card to enter into:
