Spring Wishes

TGIF!  After a much needed break, {TY, Margaret}, I'm back with a very pink spring card.  Spring has sprung here - daffodils, cherry trees, wildflowers, etc. are in bloom and the hardwoods are budding, while my husband, my dogs and I are all sneezing...but that's okay because springtime is so beautiful!

My break was actually just NOT posting.  I stayed busy in my art room creating cards and trying to be a little neater ;-).  Here I used a Greeting Farm stamp, colored with Copics and Spicas, and nesties used to cut them out.  I added pink pearls and flowers from my stash and used MFT Fishtail dies for the big flags and a Sizzix die for the sentiment, which is from PTI, stamped with PTI Pure Poppy.  I used the sketch from 613 Avenue Create.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Moving Along With the Times - Spring is in the Air
Celebrate the Occasion - Spring is in the Air
Crafty Sentiments - Hello Spring
Forever Friends - Lots of Flowers

Thanks for stopping by!
