Where is Spring?

     Happy Friday and we have another new challenge starting at QKR Stampede today.   Our themes are always "Anything Goes" and you can use any kind of image you like.  However, if you use an image from QKR, your entry is put into a special draw only for QKR (or Eureka Stamps - our sister company) and that increases your chances of winning by a lot.  :-D

     I picked a fun image called "Ant Hill" and turned it into a 'wishing for spring' card.  The expression on that ant's face looks like he missed out on the groundhog saying there would be six more weeks of winter.  lol


     The coloring was done using ProMarkers and gel ink, then I cut the image and the circle frame with stitched dies from Die-Namics.  The embossed background paper is from Doodlebug Designs.  The ribbon is layered onto gray washi tape and adhered across the top of the card.  I added two sets of 3 pearls to each end of the ribbon.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment and added one tiny pearl to it, too.  I wanted to keep the design fairly CAS because it's going to a guy who's back east in the midst of a miserably cold and nasty winter storm.
