Jumping for Spring Joy!

Isn't this color combo fun? I wish I could take credit for it, but it was this week's Bellarific Friday Challenge. Quite frankly, it had me yearning for spring as I looked outside at the white palette Mother Nature has left me! **sigh** Winter lasts soooo long here...

At any rate, I hardly ever use a white card base, so this was a challenge for me. I really wanted to keep the card light and whimsical to go with the image and paper. (By the way, I cut paper I was hoarding to make this card! I am being soooo good! You would be so proud of me! I might just have to give up my 'paper ho' crown at some point!)

This card was also based on a sketch over at Scrap, Stamp, & Doodle Saturdays.

Stamps: Anise Ketto (StampingBella), sentiment by PTI
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select White, Pixie Pink, Apricot Appeal, Gable Green, DCWV Mat Stack
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics to color
Accessories: Ribbon, Button and Hemp Twine (SU), Stickles

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week! My son turned 10 and we are having a sleepover for some of his friends on Friday night. My husband "conveniently" is going to be out of town for business. Eekkkk! If you don't see me back, send reinforcements! ;)

Hmmmm.....I had sleep overs every year for my birthday from 2nd grade through high school.....Mom saved her sanity by limiting it to three girls for the overnight! lol Fingers crossed and prayers said that you see the morning sanely! :>

Give up the 'Paper Ho' title? NEVER! Girl, you earned that, and you wear it proudly!!! LOL! I don't do white bases either (or not often) but it's perfect with these bright colors!

this was a great sketch & I love your interpretation (specifically where you placed the dp!)

be sure to remind your hubby of his absence when the next gift giving situation arises :)
