SPRING IS IN THE AIR - TIOT #53/SKETCH

Good Morning ! Can you believe it is already February? Spring is just around the corner. This image is from the Aurora Collection by Victoria Case for SCACD. Are you ready for Spring? I am and so is Aurora.

This week our challenge was to follow a Sketch by Suzanne. The image is colored with Copics with Stickles applied for added glitz. I used my Cuttlebug folder "Victoria" to emboss the pink background and added half flatback pearls for some more dimension. I made the bow with the Bow Easy - it is one of my favorite tools. This image is so versatile. I can think of several occasions it can be used for so I will wait and stamp a sentiment later.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Cute Card Thursday - Blooming Gorgeous
Dutch Dare Card Challenge #70 - Summer in Winter
Practical Scrappers - Die Cuts
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays - Open
ABC Challenge - New - use something new (stamp and paper is new)
Belli Challenge - Ribbon


I only took a picture of the bottom of the inside. The top is stitched with the DP only. It is really all that was needed. The frame and photo corners were punched and embossed with my Cuttlebug. The tulips were perfect for an added accent. A friend of mine does Quickutz embellishments and I got these from her.

Be sure to check out the other DT creations here and see what they did this week. The creations are so awesome.

Thank you for stopping by and come back!!

Hugs,
