A Little Bit OF Spring!


A little bit of Spring with “Tilda” to help deal with the cold weather and the snow that is expected here today!  Oh, Spring where are you!!

I colored the image with Copics using blues, browns and white to correspond with the Magnolia Down Under challenge.  The designer papers are from the ‘Country Boutique’ paper pad which was made exclusively for Simon Says Stamp.  I think I have had that paper for a few years.  The sentiment is from the SSS Always and Forever Stamps.  Ribbon, lace and pearls are by Crafts.  The flower was made with a MS flower punch and the branch behind it was a McGill punch.  I used blue vellum for both the flower and branch. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
