Celebrate Spring

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  We have had so much rain over the last few days, I wasn't sure if I'd need a boat to get out!  All kidding aside, we are fine, but there's been some dangerous flooding in the area and schools are even delayed today because of it.  Luckily the tornado watch has been lifted and the weather is supposed to start improving soon.  I guess this is Spring in AL!  Anyway, I am here this morning with a quick post to share a card I did for a couple of challenges I like doing.

Here it is:

My card base and mats are SU Certainly Celery and the patterned papers are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut 6x6 pad.  The adorable image is Hanging Around from Tiddly Inks. I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added the clouds and sky with my Copics, too.  This cute image is also available in a Tiddly Inks clear stamp set called Hang in There.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  A chevron ribbon bow and a few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm going to get a fresh cup of coffee and then make my way around to visit.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Challenge #130 (celebrate Spring)
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 (sketch 219)
613 Avenue Create #66 (sights, smells and sounds of Spring)
