Hello Spring!

Today I decided to try the color challenge over at Splitcoast. After looking at the colors given...Barely Banana, Ballet Blue, Old Olive and any neutral...I thought it would be perfect for a simple spring card.

Spring is showing its face here in southcentral Alaska. The buds are getting bigger on the willow trees, robins are in the backyard looking for food, rivers and lakes are no longer covered in ice. I hate to see winter go away, it is my favorite season, but spring and summer offer a lot here too!

Anyway, a decided to use the SU set 'A Kind Word'. I love the images of the little girl and chose the one of her holding a basket of flowers. As I colored it I tried to think of my daughter as a little girl,running carefree, not a care in the world.

Supplies used(all supplies are SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: A Kind Word
Paper: Kraft, Ballet Blue, Barely Banana, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Black StazOn, Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive
Accessories: Various SU watercolor crayons, blender pen, border punch, Real Red ribbon, Dimensionals
