Swinging into Spring

Hi folks! (second post for today - feel free to scroll down to see a couple of new Christmas Cards!)

It's kind of ironic that I sat down to make this card AFTER we had a significant snowfall - it was my crafty time reward for doing a little snow-clearing (this time I allowed dearly beloved to fire up the snow-blower).

I used this week's Sunday Sketch (#72) from PaperWorksCo for the layout.

And here's the card!

Isn't this cute? Does it remind you of YOUR childhood - swinging on the park swing until you could almost touch the sky?

card details:
  • finished size: 5.5 x 5.5 inches
  • stamped image: Spring Swing from the "A Day in the Life of Abigail C." collection from PaperWorksCo., coloured with Copic Markers (E31, E33, E34, E35, E37, E000, E00, E93, V04, V06, V12, G14, YG13, YG17, Y11, Y13, Y17)
  • sentiment: CTMH Seasonal Celebration (D1112)
  • Patterned Paper: Echo Park "Little Girl"
  • Spellbinders: Lacey Squares
  • CTMH Sweet Leaf Buttons from my stash
Additional challenges for this card:
Hope you have all had a lovely weekend! See you again soon!

Gorgeous card Sheena, love the purple border peeking out behind Abigail on her swing. I am loving this color scheme, and it screams Spring. Hope to see you enter it into The Pixie Cottage challenge this week, the theme is Spring!
