Wishing for Spring!

Good Morning!
The SCS colour challenge was posted by Jenn Balcer yesterday and at first I was thinking I couldn't pull it off....it had summer sun in it....lol
I decided I HAD to at least try and I actually like the end result!
I started with Taylor's TECC59 sketch and used the colours in the challenge.
Summer Sun, Riding Hood Red and Kraft
This was the first time I had used this AWESOME ribbon....I LOVE it!
Stamps: Cheep Talk; Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Summer Sun, Kraft, White and Washington Apple DP; Inks: Summer Sun, Choc Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Black; Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Circle Nesties, Riding Hood Red Ribbon, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Dimensionals
This week's All That Scraps Challenge was to use lots of ribbon!
With all the snow and cold we have had lately I'm wishing for Spring and rain which hopefully will bring a rainbow! See where I was going with this card ;)
Thankfully the first official day of Spring is this Friday!!!
I pulled out the super duper cute stamp set by CC Designs that is called Gingersnaps Spring Things. She was coloured in rainbow colours with my copic markers and some fun Glossy Accents were added to the puddle!
Stamps: Gingersnaps Spring Things; Cardstock: White, Real Red; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Rectangle Nesties, Rhinestones, Glossy Accents, Dimensionals, Grosgrain Ribbons
Thanks for stopping by today!
