Spring Sweet Pea Card


Hello! I am so happy to be seeing signs of spring around me in Middle Tennessee. I love not having to wear a coat. I pulled out some of my warmer weather clothes this weekend and was inspired by all the brighter, prettier colors that I saw. The challenge on the In a Sweet Pea Dream blog is to make something that reminds you of spring. One of my favorite spring/summer color combos is pink and orange, add my favorite color yellow to that and you have this paper! I had some problems getting a good picture of this for some reason. Those pink accents and the piece of pink framing the card and image are the same color. I don't know why it looks like I used three different pinks. I tried to adjust the colors and edit the photo, but everything I did made it look worse. I tried retaking the photo too in different light, but they still look different, so pretend with me that it all matches! The image is a Ching Chou Kuik image from Sweet Pea Stamps called Black Haired Lady and was colored with Copic markers. Papers are DCWV (I think), ribbon is American Crafts and the little accent pieces were cut out using Nestabilities.

Have a great day!

Beautifully done! I'm still waiting to see sustained signs of Spring. We get a little tease here and there, and then it's cold again. Ugh.
