Card Design: Scribbles Designs Challenge #28--Spring Has Sprung

 It is time for our new challenge over at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog. 

This time around, for Challenge #28, the theme is Spring Has Sprung! 
"Under the giving snow blossoms a daring spring." ~Terri Guillemets
The snow is now mostly all gone, here in North America. The grass is turning from shades of brown to green and the trees and flowers are starting to form buds. Yes, spring has finally sprung on this side of the world and not a minute too soon as far as we're concerned! It is high time to break out all your stamps depicting the beauty of the season. Whether you go with a creation featuring botanical elements in full bloom, or simply want to focus on a particular event associated with this time of the year, it is up to you. Just keep in mind that this month, we want to see a project that reflects the true nature of spring. 

In order to participate in our challenges you DO NOT NEED TO USE A SCRIBBLES DESIGNS IMAGE on your project but you must follow the monthly theme and the other rules that have been established for our particular challenge blog.  You can find them, along with the prize information, listed in the right hand sidebar of the challenge blog.  This challenge will end at 9pm PST on May 14th.
You can purchase your Scribbles Designs images HERE and there is a free image over on the challenge blog as well to help get you started.  Also, be sure to check out the special Freebie Friday posts as it is another great way to build your Scribbles Designs collection.
To help inspire you, I have created a simple 'thinking of you' card for a special friend.  This particular card features one of Sandy's great floral images.

Here are my card and all the details...

General Information:
  • This challenge afforded me the opportunity to whip out another of the tapes from my washi collection.  I just thought they would make a nice frame for Sandy's beautiful image.

Digital Image Details: 
  • Flower Pot 2: This image definitely screams spring to me.  Click on the name or the watermark below, to head to its location in the store. I've coloured it in mostly with coloured pencils and then used Copic markers for the pot and for grounding around the image.  

Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • This great sentiment was created by Paulette from Create with TLC.  It is perfect for a simple 'thinking of you' card.  I've used it before and I'll use it again!  I picked it up as a freebie a while back.  For more great freebies, click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and to purchase some wonderful sets, click HERE to go to the store.

Paper Products: 
  • Card, image and sentiment bases: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
  • The Washi tape is Crafts brand and was purchased at Dollarama.
Challenges I am hoping to enter... 
***Please note that if the word verification appears, ignore it and simply click the 'publish' button**
So put on those thinking caps and design a project that fits our theme. If you need some images to help you out you can check out all wonderful ones that are in the Scribbles store. You have an entire month to enter at the Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog, so I hope to see you there. If you have some time I invite you to go and check out the wonderful inspiration offered up from my colleagues on the DT. We always look forward to seeing what you come up with for each month's theme!   

Until next time,
