A Spring In Her Step

Good morning everyone! And Happy Sunday!! Can you believe it is half way through March already! Wow!!  We have had a busy weekend so far! Bailey was goalie for the U13 girls game on Saturday at 11:30 am. We were there at 9:30 am to get a little time i. This was only her 2nd game in the goal and she loves it! She had 11 saves! It was a tough game.. the other team was pretty darn good. They took a loss today. Bailey is doing so well in goal though! I'm so proud of her. Last night we went and did some more practice with her... Kevin was directing her a bit. It was good to all be out there.

Okay.. on to our challenge! We are on Challenge #27 at The East Wind and the theme is 'A Spring In Her Step' (spring themed). This is a birthday card, but I went with spring colors:

I used the image Hybiscus for this challenge. You can find that in The East Wind Shop. I went with greens and pinks. I added the crinkle ribbon and some dew drops. I also added some sequins in pink and green. I added a bunch of flowers in the bottom corner. On one of the layers I added some stitching. The  dies are Spellbinders. I colored the image with my Copic Markers. I also did a bit of stamping and some stitching too; That's it!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Eye: Y06, YG06, BG01, BG05, BG49, B39
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
  • Lips and Flowers: R000, R20, R22
  • Hair: YR61, G14, G07
  • Leaves: G00, G03, G09, G28
