Spring is finally here!!

Yeah yeah yeah!!

and welcome to this week Pastel/Colors of Spring challenge at Color Me Creative Copic Challenge.

When I think of Spring, I think of warmer weather, melting snow, new babies, spring cleaning. That’s why, at this time of the year, I feel obligated to spring clean – to dig out my scraps and use them before they all burst out of my scrap drawer and drown me! The background of this card is stitched together with scraps of paper left from other projects – I don’t recall all of the manufacturer they are little scraps no more than the 1-2″ width you see – and if my memory serves me right, I see Studio Calico, My Mind’s Eye in there (I could be wrong). Stitching backgrounds together are a great way to use up paper scraps – just find a coordinating color tone and value, so I don’t stand out more than others (unless that’s your intent). My image is from Crafter’s Companion and that little furry flower center is also a piece of scrap ribbon trim.

To enter in the challenge, you can use any image you want as long as they are colored with any alcohol markers. Your card must also be newly created.

The winner of this challenge will win a 2 stamps from Little Darling Stamps and a park of Cryogen cardstock. And when you play along the entire month (just 2 cards), you are also entered into the monthly drawing for the shopping spree at Oozak. How can you beat two prize opportunities – head on over to be inspired and get to coloring.
