New Challenge for Me-Thanks to Betty

 Betty, this card is for you.  Betty is a friend and a guest designer this week for A La Card Monkey whose challenge is the sketch below with a spring theme. Since Betty asked that some of her buddies join her in the challenge,I just had to play along and I love the sketch too. Betty is always sharing new found challenges and ideas with us. Thanks, Betty.

I chose a stamp from Flourishes "Spring has Sprung" that I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics. Sponged the image with Summer Sky and cut with a circle die. Placed on a Green mat cut with Lacey Circles. Made and arranged the other elements according to the sketch layout and stamped the Sentiment from the same stamp set.  I finished the inside with a computer printed verse.
