Spring Gardening

Good morning!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  I've got tons to do this week, but I hope to still find time for a little crafting.  Before getting on with the day, I am here with some GD inspiration for the Make it Crafty Facebook group. Today I am  showcasing the digi that is only $1 this month if you are a member of the MiC Facebook group. Head on over there and join up if you haven't already and you will find a code that will get you this month's fun digi for just $1!  What a deal and you get tons of MiC inspiration and fun chat to boot!

Here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Buckaroo Blue and the patterned paper is from the Webster's Pages Spring Market Petite Papers pack. The $1 digi for May is Edna and Ali Gardening.  I merged it with one of the pre-made country scenes called Country View Scene.  I printed the merged image on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I added a bit of Yellow Stickles to the flower centers and Glossy accents to Edna's glasses.  A simple stitched ribbon bow finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the scene:

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the MiC Facebook page, join up if you haven't already, and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the amazingly-talented MiC DT! There's a fun monthly challenge, too! Don't miss out!
