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.

Image: Stamp Fairy
Ink: Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Spring Rain and Harvest Gold, The Paper Studio DP
Embellies: PTI Harvest Gold Grosgrain Ribbon, Yellow Acrylic Gems (Hobby Lobby)
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Dimensionals

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:

2 Sisters Challenge Blog: Spring is in the Air
Fashionable Stamping Challenges: Spring is in the Air
Opus Gluei: Animals
Raise the Bar: In the Garden
There's Magic In the Air: Magical Monday: Less is More

You can check out the rest of the DT's Spring Creations here.  Why not play along and show us your version of "Spring"?

Thank you for stopping by today; have a great week!
