It's Spring!!!!

It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

‘Spring Delights’.

Challenge prize badge

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

I've created this pretty card using the 'So Ready For Spring' image from The Paper Shelter. 

My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers. The colours I've used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E55, E53, E51; Clothes & Accessories - Y35, Y32, BG15, BG13, BG11, R83, R81, YG17, YG13, YG11, R05, R02. 

I've teamed the image with some pretty papers from Echo Park, a lovely spring edge die & butterfly die from Memory Box, some lace, flowers and a touch of bling. 

Here’s a close up of the image…
