Spring has Sprung!

Well at least that is what I wish for every day as I am so sick of winter!  Today was first day of high school baseball tryouts for my oldest son and I can't wait until end of March to be sitting in those bleachers-LOL!

I have actually been getting in some crafting time and am in love with the new spring images at The Stamping Boutique.  For this card I chose to work with Flower cart, makes me excited for day I see my tulips come popping up!

I colored this image with Copics and then outlines everything with my black Spica pen.  I added some Sparkly Fluff in cotton candy pink to my flowers and then a little bling for the centers using my CTMH Bitty Sparkles.  Papers are from my stash and inked with CTMH Baby Pink or Key Lime. I added some embossing with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder, sentiment is computer generated and then punched with my Stampin' Up punches.

I am entering this card in several challenges:

Bunny Zoe Crafts- spring and flowers everywhere
The Crazy Challenge- Here comes spring
Stamp Something- something with flowers
Southern Girls- brads. gems, or dew drops (I used brads on the umbrella and wheels of cart)
Stampin' B's- use a flower
Crafty Creations- in the garden (lots of flowers in my garden)
Creative Cottage-lots of flowers
Sisterhood of Crafters- ribbon & brads
