Spring has Sprung! -- Seasons at the Crafter's Cafe

It's time for a new challenge at The Crafter's Cafe! This time, we're all about Seasons: What season are you enjoying right now? What's your favorite season? I was inspired by Spring, our current season in Maryland & probably my favorite. It's fun watching everything bloom. I used "Tulip Frame" by Eureka Stamps, one of our generous challenge sponsors.

I colored the image with Copics, using a very light blue for the background. The sentiment is stamped in blue on a woodgrain-patterened paper. I framed both pieces with Kraft paper. The background papers are from my stash (I've had them for years!) and I covered them with a layer of glitter embossing powder.

Crafty Boots: Use a Sentiment
Di's Digis Designs: Embossing
Moving along with the Times #18: Spring Flowers
Use Your Stuff: Kraft + Stash (patterned papers)

Thank you for visiting & hope you'll join us at The Crafter's Cafe,
