Daydreaming of Spring

Happy Wednesday and welcome back for my showcase on Inky Impressions rubber stamps.  Today we have a new challenge at the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog. We're looking for bright colors - specifically yellow, pink and green.  These are the colors of Spring and it feels good to create with them. I feel like it's helping turn the weather too - it's due to get near 50 degrees here in SE Michigan by the end of the week!

For my card this week, I'm using Angelica's Daydream from Inky Impressions.  I think she's adorable sitting there just dreaming about Springtime.  She was colored with Copics and the papers I used are from the Happy Days collection of Echo Park.

I was inspired by this incredible sketch at The Sweet Stop in creating my card.  I absolutely love this design and couldn't wait to try it.  I'm playing along in their challenge this week which also has a "spin" on it - also use dies or punches in creating your card.  You can see that I used the Italian Flourish Doily diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs and the Die-Namics Dizzy Border diecut from My Favorite Things.

We'd love to have you join us in the Inky Impressions Challenge this week - get your Spring on with these bright colors!  To see more, stop on over to the challenge blog and see what all the other Inkettes created for your inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!
