Is it Spring yet?

Hi Everyone,

Well it is sunny out but it's is so cold outside so I thought a bright a flowery card would be just wonderful for today.  This is Garden Fence from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  I also thought it would be fun to play this week's Splitcoaststampers Card Sketch challenge.  This is SC523.


Copics - V12, V15, V17, V05, V06, V09, YG0000, YG21, YG23, C3, C5, C7, G21, G24, G28, B000, B0000

There is no patterned paper on this card.  Instead I used an embossing folder with dots from my stash and my compressor to spray the purples onto match my cardstock mats.  So this was a pretty simple and fun card to make.  I also left the sentiment off this one just until I'm ready to send it off to someone.

Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful day!
