First day of Spring

Can you believe it's the first day of spring? It sure doesn't feel like it though. Cold and a few flurries coming down, although the sun did peak out for a bit this afternoon.

So with spring upon us, I thought I would colour up something 'springy'.  I'm show casing today an Uptown image called Lolly and her Brolly.

I stamped Lolly on bella's bestest paper and coloured her using copics.  The yellow shading around her was done with prismacolour pencils.

This card is packed with many die cuts.  I used all spellbinder dies - fancy lattice, A2 bracket borders one, oval, and oval scallop.

Designer paper is by Fancy Pants - Park Bench.  I like how the paper peaks through the lattice work.

Finished off with glitter, glossy accents on the sunflower,
seam binding ribbon and a couple of yellow prima flowers.

If you haven't submitted your entry for this weeks sketch  challenge you still have time.   See layout 2 posts down.
You can email Emily by thursday night for a chance to win $20 in bella bucks as well as your card up in lights on bloggabella.

Okay, I'm off to work on Friday's challenge card. I'm running behind this week.  See you back here on Friday.

Thanks for coming by, :)

Oooo I love that lattice die. Makes such a pretty background for Lolly. If I'm not mistaken she was the very first UG I ever colored. Beautiful card my friend! Hugs!
