Welcome Spring

So, today I noticed little green buds on the trees and I got pretty excited.  I love when everything starts to turn green.  So, that is what inspired my card today.

So, the color scheme is from the ColorQ challenge 29.  The layout is from the CPS 163 sketch.  Also, in honor of Earth day, Frosted is challenging crafters to use a tree in their project.  Yup, managed to sneak three challenges into this one.  :)  When I stamped the tree it turned out much more yellow than I had anticipated, so I ended up going in and adding a touch of green to each leaf with a copic.

Well, hopefully this has a 'springy' feel to you too.  Hopefully we have seen the last of snow!

Paper - White cardstock PTI, colored cardstock and patterened paper CTMH
Stamp - PTI Through the Trees
Ink - CTMH pansy purple, sunflower, Stampology citrine, Colorbox lime pastel
Other - Brads, corner rounder, copics
