It's a Spring Thing

Today is the first posting of a new blog challenge with a new team over at Oddball Art :)  The theme for this month is SPRING!!

AND did you know I have a 10% voucher code you can use to get discount on these beautiful images and anything else in the Oddball Art store.  Just quote DTANDREA10 at check out!!

I love spring all the flowers and leaves coming out and the wildlife buzzing about.  So I had to do something along those lines because that what spring means to me - apart from hopefully seeing a bit of sun - I do live in the UK you know ;)

I've used is Sara N Friends Image 21 for this card.  She's coloured with ProMarkers in pink and white.   I decided to give her a block colour highlight in pink in her hair as well as that's one of the trends in hairstyles that's being going round in the UK.  I have a blond one if you look at my profile pic :)

I decided Sara should have some tiny blue bird friends to complete the pastel look of the card.  Once I'd done her I cut her out with a Spellbinders die and added some embossing enamel to give a hint of ground around her feet.  Here's a close up of the completed image.

Design papers are from First Edition - The Promise, Wild Rose Studio - Antique Library and Lili of the Valley/NiWit Collections - Country Meadow.

I've added a collection of flowers to the top right corner for the spring theme.  These are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.  Here's a close up of the arrangement for you.

The final touch I've added to the card are three sets of pearlised self adhesive gems.

Hope you love my card for the spring theme.  Please check out the Oddball Art challenge blog so you can see my team mates beautiful creations!
