Happy Spring!

Hi all!
I hope to have a few new ones to post later on but for now, this was my submission for today's skech challenge on SCS. It was a fun one... I love offset layouts so this was right up my alley!

We are having record cold temps for March here in NC, but by the weekend it is supposed to be in the 70's! I won't be here.... I'll be in AL. where it will be nearly 80 according to my daughter! So... while I'm packing winter jacket, etc. I'm also packing capris and short sleeved tops! That's the nature of this time of year. March definitely came in like a lion here... so as the saying goes, "...in like a lion, out like a lamb!" So in honor of this great weather that's coming, I made this Happy Spring card.

I got to use my new designer paper from SU!... Delicate Dots. Wow! I LOVE this paper! The colors are soo delicate and pretty! My image is Great Impressions, and is stamped on watercolor paper, and watercolored with SU! Markers, except the watering can... that's done with Copics. There are stickles on each image but they don't seem to show up. Everything is layered on SU! Kraft. I am really happy with how this came out and I'm glad it went together quickly this morning as I have a lot to do today! Hope you like this and have a great Wednesday!!!
