Spring Forward or Fall Back

Helloooooooo Everyone!!!  It's World Card Making Day and there is fun to be had over at the Power Poppy Blog!  There are challenges every couple of hours (so keep checking back) and PRIZES to be won!!!  WOOHOO!!!

I'm hosting the SECOND challenge (haven't seen the first yet?  Make sure you pop on over to Power Poppy - don't want to miss a challenge right!!) which is Spring Forward, Fall Back!  The code for this challenge if you post to an outside gallery (like Splitcoaststampers) is PPWCMD02!

We are celebrating World Cardmaking Day and as we reside in places far and near we thought that we would also celebrate the seasons in our homelands!  As an Australian, we are now in Spring!  The earth is warming, kids are in pools swimming, flowers are blooming and the bees are buzzing!  However, you may be moving into the season of Autumn/Fall, adding a few layers, indulging in hot cocoa and coffee and watching the leaves turn in a myriad of colours.  Today we challenge you to Spring Forward or Fall Back, create a Spring card or a Fall themed card and play along with us!

I have used the Countryside Bouquet Digi Stamp for my flowers and coloured them with Copics and the sentiment from  Countryside Bouquet Deluxe Clear Set!

I've started with a base of pink bazzill, layered with white and So Saffron and some Summer Breeze DP.  The next panel is white punched top and bottom with Deco Fan Border Punch and topped with more Summer Breeze DP.  Around this I've added white and pink ribbons.  I've printed the digi image onto X-press It Blending Card, coloured with Copics (a lot of Copics!) and cut with Circle Nestabilities and matted with So Saffron cut with Lacey Circles and popped it up on X-press It Foam Tape.  The sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut with an oval punch, glued into place and topped with a pink enamel dot.  To finish I've added a couple of clear rhinestones to the top corner and a bow to the ribbon!
