I’m hosting the Sassy Challenge again this week, and if the amount of rain we’ve had this Spring is any indicator of the flowers that will be blooming… we should have flowers EVERYWHERE!!

As you read in my title…

…but since it’s Spring ya know!

This is Maddie, Quiet Inspiration, isn’t she a cutie! This particular digi comes with some extras, the pot of flowers, the little birdie that I perched on the flowers and a sentiment. I merged the flower pot over two birds that are part of the image.

It’s colored with Copics, clouds are sponged with my cloud template and Faded Jeans distress ink.

For some extra fun, I used several Kool Tak products. For the water, I used Transfer Foils{Sea Tones}, then I added some Sparkles {Glitter and Beads}. Both are 15% off this week thru May 7!

I printed an extra pair of legs, colored, cut them out and popped them up after I’d done the foil.

The floral paper is a download from Flower Soft, Play Time With Lucky, an Elisabeth Bell download.

My Spellbinders dies are Gold Labels 4 and Radiant Rectangles, edged with a Copic.

Popped up legs- that's one thing I never have to do. Unfortunately mg plump ole legs pop up more than I like. Ha ha.. Another gorgeous card Dawn.
