It Feels Like Spring!

     We've had such beautiful weather out here in central California this last week (in the low 80s) and everything is blooming, bursting, or popping!   In the midst of all that, I simply had to do cards that have springtime images on them, including this one which is my DT card for Digi Doodle Studios, where our newest challenge theme is "Use Ribbon or Lace."  I added ribbon to my lace.  :-D

     The image is called "Keira" and I think she's fabulous with her shy, little puppy behind her.

I based this on the sketch at Tuesday Morning, running the division the length of the card
and offsetting it slightly. I also used the middle row of TicTacToe colors from Color Dare.


Colored with ProMarkers
Image and mat cut with dies from QuicKutz
Background dp scrap embossed with 'Linen' EF
Lace woven with satin ribbon
"Pearls" added to ribbon with Pearl Drops
Sentiment printed and cut with Avery Elle die

    I hope we're going to see you playing along in our challenge this month and don't forget to check out our Facebook page, too.  Over there, we have a "Forever" challenge each month which is always "Anything Goes with a DDS image."

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

This is so beautiful. Love the image and your coloring. That lace is just gorgeous with the ribbon and pearls in it. We had it warm for Wisconsin, but still have snow, far from having buds and blossoms. Now for my other role, thanks for joining in the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenges, Lisa Lynn DT.

She is fabulous Connie, I love the ribbon too, a Beautiful card for Spring.
Our plants are popping out for Spring too, but with low temperatures and being drowned in so much rain, it's a wonder they are surviving. Daffodils are lovely though :)

So pretty and that ribbon and lace are wonderful on the side. Precious card and a sweet image.
We're having spring like weather too but I'm sure it'll get cool again before we finally hit the nice weather.

Beautifully colored, Connie! I like the trim - weaving the ribbon through the lace is perfect - and your design is superb. Thank you for playing along with us at Color My Heart Color Dare #383.
