Thinking Spring!




Good Morning Everyone,

Today I'm kicking off the week with a card that I made for several challenges. Although it can be tricky combining challenges, it is very satisfying when you can pull it off. I based my card off of the second Midnight Madness sketch and incorporated other card challenge details with the need embellishments, my image and color combos.



I colored my Inky Impressions image ( LiLi's Prayer) with the main colors for the Copic Color Challenge. (Yellow, green and gray) I'm also submitting this card for Inky Impression "Think Spring" and Cute Card Thursday's "Ribbon-Tastic" Challenge. I think the spring colors speak for themselves and instead of my usual ribbon bows, I made a trio of ribbon flowers.


LiLi is colored in with Copic Markers and the sentiment is from The Greeting Farm. The card stocks are Bazzill and PTI, the design paper is by Doodle Bug. The inks are Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers. I also lightly airbrushed the background to give more depth. Embellishments are ribbon, buttons and Stickles and tools used were paper pierce tool and SU's corner punch.

Now that life is back to normal, I can catch up on my blogging duties. Have a beautiful day and thank you all so much for stopping by!

Lovely card, I had a problem with you link, maybe it is just me. I had to go back to MMSC41 and move forward on your blog to get to this card. Like I said maybe it is just me. But you might check it out!! Your coloring is so lovely and I love your papers and embellishments as well. The MMDesign Team thanks you for playing along with us this week.
