Spring Has Sprung

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  Are you having a good week so far?  So far, so good on my end.  I'm popping in to share a card I made for a couple of challenges I like to do.  It is for The Paper Players #85 (spring has sprung), Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge (use corner embellishments, blue and green color combo, oval background and add some flowers) and the current Whoopsi Daisy Challenge (lace and pearls).

Here is my card for the challenges:


I started with a card base of SU Certainly Celery and layered with pretty blue and green patterned paper from the Memory Box Minuet 6x6 pad.   My sweet spring image is from Whoopsi Daisy Sheet 330.  You can purchase the sheet from Linnie here.  This is one of the two sheets I received for winning last week's challenge!  Thank you, Linnie!  I printed the image on Cryogen White and colored it with Copic markers then highlighted the flowers with some Stickles.  I did a bit of sponging with Memento Summer Sky (clouds) and Pear Tart (grass).  The image is layered on a lacy oval frame made with the Cheery Lynn Polynesian Sails Oval die.  The sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  I think Paulette generously shared it as a freebie recently. Thanks, Paulette! The corners were made with a Cuttlebug Vintage Corner die. I added some wide crocheted lace and a few white pearls.  Three Wild Orchid Crafts roses finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and see you again soon!
