Spring Watercolor

My mom said last week that she wanted to see more springy-looking stuff, and I aim to please, so...

I think it's springy.  Do you?

I used the Banners Framelits for the Hardwood piece, but the original Framelit wasn't tall enough for what I wanted on my card, so I cut cardstock to about the width of the die and then just ran the flagged end through the Big Shot so I could have my banner as tall as I wanted it.  For the flower, you can't tell but it's cut out and popped up on Dimensionals, and I "colored" it with the watercolor swooshy stamp in the stamp set.  Easy peasy.

I used last week's SCS color challenge and a recent Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch:

And now I have to start studying again.  I have to retake half of that stupid comprehensive exam towards the end of March, and I'm working on that tea party too, so it's going to be a busy six weeks.  Bleargh.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Cheers!

Hey, what would you do with yourself if you didn't have something to work towards, I ask you? So you are in your element. I do like your springy card. Very nice. It's gotten colder for this week, but I'm wearing a dress today as my boss's boss is here for a meeting. Fun times! Love you!

It looks perfectly "March" to me. :) I just got that Hardwood stamp and am anxious to get playing with it!
