Sweet Sunday Spring

Happy first day of Spring!!! It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC109.

I just love how the evenings are so much lighter and brighter now that we're into daylight savings time. Another sure sign of spring around my house is that yesterday I switched out the snow tires on my car for the smooth riding summers...yay! But don't worry, I already know that if it snows now I'll be sure to get all the blame! LOL!!!

I'm celebrating Spring with this super cheery and colourful card. The image is Spring a la carte from Taylored Expressions. It's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured with copics. I added sparkle to the flower with two Spica glitter pens and made the letters super glossy with three coats of clear glaze pen. The papers are all from my Spring Project Pantry.

Once I had the basic layout done I jazzed it up with a few of my favourite TE dies: clouds, picket fence, and friendship blooms.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with.

Super cute Karen! Love the sparkle and glossy letters and I'm sure you've created some sort of butterfly effect by changing out your tires - ha!
