Inspired by Spring

Here's another card for the World Cardmaking challenges at Power Poppy.  This challenge is titled "Spring Forward, Fall Back" to celebrate the different seasons in each hemisphere.  Seeing that I'm a true blue Aussie girl, I naturally decided to make a Spring card, and I thought the most logical choice would be this sweet little image from Power Poppy's Springtime Love set which is stamped with Memento black ink onto blending card, coloured with copics and die cut with a Spellbinders Classic Oval die.  The background papers are from (appropriately) Spring Drop paper pad by First Edition, layered onto lavender cardstock, and the horizontal piece punched with EK's scalloped scallop border punch.  I also added a paper doily and a white picket fence made with Martha Stewart's picket fence border punch - because I thought they looked Spring-y.  Finally, I die cut lavender cardstock with a Spellbinders Floral Ovals die and popped the image piece on top with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were:  V01, V04, V12, RV32, RV34, YG11, YG13, G43, G46, B00, B02.

Thanks for visiting!
