Wish Spring Would Sprung

Dear Ones~
Well, we survived another storm....some places downstate got over 12 inches of snow. We only got about 4...guess I should be happy.

My card for today is all about spring. A girl can dream, can't she? Here's my card:

I really like this GKD stamp set by Theresa Momber, it's called Signs of Spring. Sure could use a crocus or two right now. I stamped the flowers with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and the leaves with Peeled Paint. I will be entering this in the Stamp TV Monday Challenge, where we were to make a spring card and not use black. Ordinarily I would stamp this in black and then color it in. I used Distress Markers to watercolor the image on watercolor paper.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Ivory and Lovely Lavender Card Stock
Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry Card Stock
Background Paper by Momenta
GKD Signs of Spring Stamp Set
MFT Die-namics Rectangle Stitched Die
Distress Inks
Distress Markers
Stash Sequins

This card will be entered in:
Stamp TV Weekly Challenge - A Spring Look with No Black
Simon Says Work It Wednesday - Floral
Hope you all are having a good week, one more day until the weekend. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments!!
