Spring is Coming!

I am still working on making my cards (130) for the residents of the Belmont Nursing Home. I like to try to make a different design for each person, so Sketch challenges really help me with my card making. Today I made 5 different cards specific for five different card challenges.

Sketch 49-001   e2-2

For this card I used  Happy Easter to Ewe by Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured the stamp with Copic markers. The sentiment is called Easter Seal by Technique Tuesday. The paper, gems, and flowers are from my stash.

I entered this card into Try Stamping on Tuesday – Challenge 208
