Spring Delights at Graph'It Colouring Challenge

Good morning my lovelies, are you ready for the weekend? I certainly am, work has been a nightmare this week as we've been really short staffed but I've just got to muddle through today and I've got 10 days off! I'll be rushing home from work to start my holiday and also to watch the lovely Nikky Hall who's on C&C at 9am and 1pm with some fabulous new releases that you're not going to want to miss. There are some amazing new stamp sets, yes that's right .... new Polkadoodles stamps and they are lush!!

Anyway back to today's card which is my DT project for our 'Spring Delights' challenge at Graph'It Colouring Challenge.. I've chosen the second colour palette for inspiration for my card this week. I've used this gorgeous image from our sponsor Ching Chou Kuik, she's called Sunshine and you can find her here
I love to see the gorgeous backgrounds that people have created with their markers but I don't have a lot of patience so I've created a very quick background with my markers. Just scribble some shades of blue on a glass cutting mat, spritz with Mix'It Fluid and swoosh some glossy card stock through it for a lovely 'sky'. Then I roughly sketched in some grass and a few dots of pink/blue/lilac and lemon to create the effect of flowers! Easy peasy :-)

I've stamped the sentiment (from Indigo Blu) with Bahama Blue Memento Ink and added some little AB gems in the corners before matting and layering with white and pale blue card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Ching Chou Kuik Digital Stamps: Easter/Spring colours
Crafty Creations: Spring Fever
Crafty Enjoyments: Easter or Spring
Petal Lu: Anything goes
Sparkles Forum: Make it girlie

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
