Spring Has Sprung...

Well... at least on my card!!   Here in the Pacific Northwest (Washington State to be exact) spring is trying really hard to arrive with flower popping out all over the place, but sunshine and warmer weather have yet to make an appearance!  So... I guess I will have to be happy with making spring-like cards.



My card today is for the Flourishes challenge "Spring Has Sprung" as well as the Penny Black Saturday challenge "Flowers".   I used an image from the Penny Black set "Flowers & Wishes" for my card and colored it with Copic markers (B00, B02, B05, YG03, YG06, Y11 & Y13) to correspond with the color palette for the Flourishes challenge.  For once I didn't use a white cardstock base, but used a retired SU! green called Gable Green.  The other cardstock is from PaperTrey Ink (white, Lemon Tart & Spring Rain).   Since I hadn't used ribbon on anything in a few days I just had to put some on this card!

Thanks for taking a peek... hope spring has arrived in your neighborhood!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, Lemon Tart & Spring Rain; SU! Gable Green; Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black & Summer Sky; Stamps:  Penny Black Flowers & Wishes; Hero Arts gems, PTI Lemon Tart ribbon; Copic Markers; Fiskars Upper Crust punch; Sizzix embossing folder

Spring looks the same here on the Oregon coast -- lots of lush green and pretty flowers, but I need some sunshine! Your card is so cute! Love the stamp and the embossed panel. These colors look very sweet and clean together. Glad you could join us at Flourishes!
