Spring Wishes

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I'm so excited that the weekend is almost here. Do you have any big plans for the weekend? I think hubby and I are going to go see Alice in Wonderland this weekend (I've heard it's really good). Other than that, I think we'll do some chores around the house and hopefully be able to veg out some too :)

For my card today, I decided to use fun spring colors in hopes that spring will be here to stay soon. We have had really nice weather here lately, but today it's raining and it's only going to be in the low 40s. Brrrr! :) For my card, I decided to ink up one of the adorable Swiss Pixies from CC Designs. This particular image is called Swiss Pixies Heidi. I colored the image with copics (Hair: E35, E55; Skin: E00, E01, E11, R20; Shirt: Y21, Y23; Skirt and shoes: R81, R83, R85, R89). I added Diamond Stickles to her wings and then cut her out using my Labels 1 Nestabilities die. I then inked around the top of the image with SU's Bashful Blue ink. I added grass to the bottom of the image with my copics. Next I created my card base using SU cardstock. The design paper is from K&Co's Wild Raspberry stack. For a finishing touch, I added some Primas to the top left corner. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Christine :)
