DT Card for Lacy Sunshine Challenge #6 - Spring Fever.

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok and enjoying the slightly milder weather?

Today is the start of challenge #6 over at Lacy Sunshine and the theme this time is Spring Fever, so we really want to see anything with a spring theme or colours.  Simples!

As usual, the winner will receive $30 to spend at the Lacy Sunshine store.  So head over there, take a look at the rules and give it a go!  There is plenty of Sunshine Girls inspiration there too...and you'll get to see some brand new characters which are just being released today!  I haven't used one on this card but have made some projects using the new characters which I will be showcasing in the coming days...starting tomorrow!  I absolutely love, love, love them, especially as they were my idea, lol.  Heather's so good to me...even though she thinks I'm nuts!  :oD 

Anyhoo, here's my card:

I've used Heather's incredibly gorgeous Flower Pot Pretties Cherri for this one and she is an absolute dream to colour and use.  There are a whole range of Flower Pot Pretties in the Lacy Sunshine store and they even have their own page on there...they're so cute!

I have coloured Cherri using the following markers:

Skin:  Copics E00, E11 and E21 and Baby Pink Promarker
Pink :  Baby Pink and Antique Pink
Eyes:  Marine, Turquoise and Cool Aqua
Hair:  Caramel, Sandstone and Satin
Green:  Bright Green, Meadow Green
Container:  Ivory
Brown:  Walnut, Cocoa and Sandstone

The matting layer is green (doesn't really look it in the pic), metalic, textured cardstock and the backing paper is from Debbi Moore's Oriental CD, which I colourised to suit my colour scheme.  It has koi carp on but you can't really see that in my picture.

The sentiment was created on my lappy.

The flowers and faux pearls are from my stash. 

Voila, a card with a spring theme!

I have entered this card into the following challenges:

  53. Hi Lexie, just popped over to say thank you for the lovely comment you left on my Lacy Sunshine challenge entry - it means a lot to me so thank you very much!
    When I can I'm going to buy this digi, it's gorgeous and I love how you've coloured her, a very beautiful card.
    I absolutely gobsmacked that SSS are still playing dirty! I deleted all of the 'free' digi's I got from them as I hate this sort of nastiness and theft. Have a good weekend hugs Karen
