Creative Card Crew: Spring
Good morning! It's time for another fun challenge from the ladies at Creative Card Crew; our theme for this fortnight is "Spring" and our sponsor is StampFairy. I love Gerda's images...am always happy when I get to work with one!
My friend Denise was telling me about her bathroom remodel and it sounded so pretty, that I thought I would borrow her color palette for this card. Blue and yellow...isn't it fresh and pretty? Just like Spring!
Lenny is colored with pencils and his eyes are dotted with a black gel pen. I used Spellbinders dies to cut and layer the image, then added some acrylic gems and grosgrain ribbon for embellishments. I used the sketch from Create With Connie and Mary, not realizing it was supposed to be Stampin' Up! only. It really is a fun sketch...will probably use it again.
