Happy Spring!

Happy Wednesday and happy Spring!  We're having such warm, summer-like and record-breaking weather here in Michigan and it's just terrific by my book.  It's nice to get free of the winter coats and let our toes breath in sandals!!!  I hope you are having a nice start at Spring too. 

I can't think of a better way to celebrate the start of Spring than a new challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!  So get out your Spring and Easter stamps and digis and join us this week!

This week's sketch makes for such an interesting card - all layered and embellished.  As you know I like layouts with lots of layers, especially like this where you have a clear view of all the pretty papers used.  

Our monthly sponsor, Digi Stamp Boutique, is providing the Grand Prize winner of the challenge six free digis of your choice.  Sally Ann, owner of DSB, has been sponsoring Sweet Sketch Wednesday from the very first challenge and is always so generous to our winners and our team.  Thanks Sally Ann.  You'll find such a wonderful selection of digis at Digi Stamp Boutique - take a look around and see what's new there.

I chose this adorable and perfect for Spring digi from Digi Stamp Boutique called "Spring Coco and Friends". I just love this little teddy from DSB.  The image was brought to life using Copics and the pretty Spring papers are from Crate Paper.  Again, I used my MS Cornflower punch to create the handmade flower embellishment - it's the perfect size flower for this sketch.

I hope you'll stop by and play along with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday! The design team has created some adorable cards this week with Digi Stamp Boutique images - take a look and be inspired!

Thanks for stopping by!
