A springy card


I came across another great blog Everybody-Art-Challenge
The sketch is wonderful. I think you can even win some blog-candy.
I received this cute image from laurlynn from a PIF thread on SCS. Since I am all done with my christmas cards for this year I thought I'd make a springy card. I know it is very early, but I can't help starting my christmas cards early, so I am already done (they just need to be dropped off now)
Image was colored using my blick studio markers. It was cut out with my CM oval cutting system and matted on a green galore oval. The card front is sahara sand card stock. Designer Paper is by K&Company "classic bailey collection. I added stickles to some of the stripes. The strip of green galore card stock was run through my big kick using a cuttlebug folder, sorry I don't know the name of the folder as I thru the packaging away. I went over the embossed card stock with the ink pad to darken the raised parts a little. I also sponged the edges of the white oval with blashful blue and the edges of the Designer Paper with rose red. I added stickles glitter to the main image and to the little yellow punched out flower. The card base is white, and is a 5.5 inch square.
Stamps: serene spring, small script (both SU)
Paper: GP 110lb white, SU: sahara sand, green galore, K&company designer paper
Ink: black, green galore, bashful blue, rose red
Accessories: ribbon, fabric flowers, punched out flower, brad, flower trio punch, CM cutting system, cuttlebug folder, big kick, stickles glitter
Thanks for looking.
