Gingerloft Spring Challenge

Spring doesn't arrive until March 20th but it's spring here at Pink Posh Cards.  We have had some spring like days but the trees are still bare and the grass is still brown.  So, it's nice to anticipate what the season brings.  Bright colors, fresh air and KITES!  A simple pleasure.  Children and adults enjoy this pastime.  The Gingerloft Design Team has a Spring theme today.  I had a lot of fun putting this card together. 




I started by printing the kite image on my printer using white cardstock.  I wanted "springy" colors.  I chose the patterned paper first.  It's from the Stella and Rose Collection.  I then matched my Copic markers to the colors in the paper.  I knew I wanted to give the main image a special look so I die cut it in a swirly shape.  I cut two more of this shape from yellow cardstock and used them to mat my image.  I found the cute puffy cloud and smaller kite in my stash and decided to add them to my scene. 



Spring is HERE!
