Think Spring!

Hello to all my lovely visitors.  This post introduces the latest challenge at Just Inspirational Challenges.  The sponsor for this week is Stitchy Bear.

For my card, I used a digital paper, sentiment and image from Stitchy Bear.  Here is what I came up with....
The floral paper is a digital paper from Stitchy Bear.  I imported the paper into My Craft Studio and added the yellow and pink 'layers' as well as the framed sentiment.  The 'textured' yellow layer framing the pink is also a digi paper from Stitchy bear.  The image is colored with Pro Markers.  I am working on my technique with hair.  I think I am getting

The image layer and it's mat are cut out with Grand Nesties dies.  I really wanted the card to move from a muted background to the bright flowers in the forefront.  The flowers are from a set I got from Create and Craft.  They are the type of embellishment that you want to use on everything, but you want to horde it at the same time.  They are definitely too pretty to stay in a box though, so on the card they went.

Do check out the digis at Stitchy Bear -  they really have a wide range of styles in their digis.

Don't forget to pop over to Just Inspirational Challenges to see what the rest of the design team have come up with and to link up your own creations.

Okee dokee, I am off now to clear up my crafting supplies to make room for Virgin to install our fibre optic broadband on Friday...   I can't wait to have a speedier (is that a word) internet connection, but it does mean they have to be able to run the cable so my entire downstairs will be in disarray and my crafting will be a bit on hold for a bit.  Hopefully it will be worth it when it is all over!

Enough babble from me.  Take care and come visit again soon.  I love reading your comments, so please feel free to let me know what you think of my card.
