Digital Tuesday Challenge 'Spring Time!'

Hello and welcome to another Digital Tuesday Challenge.  This week's challenge is called 'Spring Time!'.  Such irony, as I have yet to experience any Spring Time temperatures here in Northern Wisconsin yet.  We drove home from church on Sunday in yet another snowstorm, with more snow expected to arrive this Thursday, and no warm temps in sight.  Ugh!  I know, I know, I've been whining about this for awhile now, but can you really blame me?  I love Spring, it's my favorite season, and I'm missing it!  Oh well, if I can't have Spring in real life, at least I can create it in paper!  Our sponsor this week is  The Paper Nest Dolls.

To make my card, I used The Paper Nest Dolls image 'Springtime Ellie'.  My sketch is from MFT (MFTWSC75).  The paper is Jillibean Soup.  

 I must admit, coloring all the tiny details in this image was a challenge for me.  I didn't like the way my flowers turned out, so I ended up covering most of them up with Flower Soft and Stickles.  I like the result in the end.  It's always funny to me when mistakes often turn into blessings.    Here's a close up so you can see the coloring and other details better.
If you'd like to play along with us this week, simply click on the Digital Tuesday Challenge Blinkie in my sidebar and it will take you directly to the Challenge Site with further instructions.

Have a great day! Amy


  1. Oh it does remind one of spring, I know how you feel, we still have oodles of snow to melt. Your card is wonderful and I think your flowers are great with the stickles and flower soft effects on them. Love the background paper!

  2. Awww..this is just too cute! Love the coloring, and those papers are just perfect!! Totally adorable card sweetie, just love it.


  3. A really cute card Amy, love those papers and beautiful sketch. Darling image too!
    So sorry you are still dealing with snow! Hopefully spring will arrive there soon! It's been really cold and nasty here in IL too, I think we only had a couple of nice days this april, which fell right on the days that my son was at the hospital :-(
