Thinking Spring over at Sassy Cheryl's

Well here she is:  Cheryl Alger's new digi called Spring Bunny With Flowers.  I know, I know.  Everyone is going Awwww, she is so cute I have to have her.  Well go ahead click here and it will pop you to the place you need to be.  She is only $3.00, but I won her last week on the Color Me Challenge.  $3.00 is good, but FREE is better!

I made this card with someone special in mind.  I wanted to do a soft effect so I didn't put a whole lot of color on the image itself.  She has that homespun country feeling that I tried to capture.  I think I kind of blew it with the bright gingham bow, but I couldn't resist it.  You see the blank blue area on the right side of the blue base?  Well I have a sentiment I will be popping there.  The recipient of this card sees my blog (especially when it pops up on Facebook) so I left it off for this picture. You gotta have some surprises, you know!

I used my own version of a circle easel card.  The base layer actually has 4 layers of paper.  I graduated the circles on the top portion for effect.  The digi is cut out with the large scalloped circle Nestability.  The flowers are all from Recollections.  The ribbon was 1/2 price at Michaels and was really nice to work with.  Colored with copics and wallah.

Now it is your turn.  Pop on over to Sassy Cheryls, pick you out a cutie to color and enter your creation here.  That simple, and your name will be in the drawing for a $5.00 gift certificate from the store.  Hurry now, the challenge ends on Monday at 5:00.

Just found another Spring challenge over at Totally Papercrafts I am going to enter this in too.  If you would like to check if out, click here.
