Bring Back Spring


Welcome to my studio. The weather in Ohio seems to be leaving spring behind and bringing winter back. More snow is expected this week...Mother Nature, please check your calendar. I am still in the spring mode and that is what my card is about....spring colors. For this card, I used Meljen's "Flutterby Fairy" image and a color theme of Pink and Green. Followed a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday but used circle instead of oval to better fit the image and shifted the panel from the side to the center. I decided to wait and add a sentiment when I use the card.
Challenges:
Meljens Design: Challenge 106-Theme is spring.
Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Sketch 160.  See below. Modified a bit to fit my image...hope it still meets challenge.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge: Use more than 1 ribbon
Crafty Friends Challenge: Use 2 die cuts- used circle and scallop circle.
Paper Pretties: Monday challenge is Pink and Green.
Crafty Ribbons: Things with Wings
Fussy and Fancy: Challenge is punches and dies.
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Loaded with Layers.

Papers: White and Pink CS, BasicGrey Sweet Threads Pattern Paper and Page Kit (Die Cut Flowers)
Copics: E0000,E00, R20,R81, R83, R85, YG000,YG03, YG09
