This card is for the very first challenge for my new blogging group called the Crafty Critter's! The challenge was to use a critter (very fitting!) and the colors green and yellow! I knew I needed a card that just screamed Spring! Well what do you think?! I am in love with this little lady! She is just so cute and to me it looks like those open arms are welcoming Spring in! I took my yellow and ran it through my crimper one way and then the next. It gave me a corduroy kind of look and feel! I used my SU! Spiral punch to make holes in the top and stamped flowers on the bottom of the yellow and the base of my green! I added a touch of Stickle sparkle to the center of each flower and mounted this sweet little lady on a square punched from the pink mega punch! I added three bridal flowers with some lovely shades of pink dew drops in each of their centers! I pop dotted the square and then the little lady! I used my water color pencils to color her in! I felt like it turned out to be a pretty dang happy card! LOL

Hope that you have had a wonderful weekend! I plan to spend the rest of the evening working on the many, many swaps I have signed up for over at SplitCoast! I hope to have more crafty goodness to share with you soon! : )

Have a wonderful night!
