Welcome Spring



Hi everyone and Happy Saturday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Hubby and I had a super busy day today, but we're finally home. It is so lovely outside. It was in the 70s today and is supposed to be just as warm tomorrow. I am loving it! :)

In honor of spring, I decided to ink up this gorgeous image from Young Cathrine With Friends image from the Anki's Sweethearts line available exclusively at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. I added Cotton Candy Stickles to the flower on Cathrine's shirt. I then created my card base, which measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4, out of SU's Certainly Celery. I layered Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by Barely Banana, followed by my design paper from Debbie Mumm's Little Girl line. I added a Pretty in Pink ribbon and bow, and then adhered my image to my SU cardstock and then to the card base with dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added Primas and a pearl. It's a pretty simple layout, but I wanted the fun spring colors and the image to take center stage.

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back on Monday with another project.

Big Hugs, Christine :)
