Dreaming of Springtime?

Okay, I must be dreaming of springtime.  It's been snowing here all afternoon
so you'd think I'd be inspired to come up with a more winter themed
card, but no I came up with this one!

I wanted to link up with the challenge at Beccy's Place,
where you need to use one of her images to do so.
I had this one which I won last month
and thought it would work well with the color combo at colourQ.

I printed the image on white card stock, colored with spectrum noir
pencil colors, fussy cut and added to the die cut ovals.
I did a little bit of dry embossing, stamped a sentiment and
finished up with some enamel dots.
And there you have it. Springtime!
Boy, that's really wishful thinking. It's only January
and I live in Colorado!
Anyway, hope you all have a great rest of the weekend.

Thanks for taking a look!


  1. I think the exact same thought popped into our head as your card totally made me wish for summer. Although, the -15 degree weather with a -32 degree windchill is already making me wish for summer. Sigh* Very lovely use of those colors!

  2. Very sweet card - love the bird house with flowers! Thanks for playing along with us at the ColourQ!

  3. I love the colour combo you used Judy, it's so bright and cheerful and perfect for a spring card. The paper combination is wonderful. I really like the embossing on the green cardstock and the lovely scalloped oval you used to frame the image. Great job!

  4. I'm longing for Spring as well and I'm not even facing the snow! Wonderful card Judy! I love the colors!
