Spring Is In The Air!

Spring Is In The Air over at The Crafty Pad for Challenge #116!
Here is my DT card! 

Our Challenge this week is sponsored by

Who are offering a fab prize of £10 to spend on anything of your choice!
They have templates, digi papers & lot's more too!

This week the lovely boss, Debbie from The Crafty Pad Designs
(where you can buy digi & polymer stamps)
 has asked the DT to use a Window or Wishing Well image.

As I used Windows last week I thought I'd use the Wishing Well this week!
The image is called Boy & Girl at Wishing Well!

I coloured the image with Promarkers as ever & chalked in the sky!
The little girl started with beautiful blonde hair but, as I was a bit heavy handed with my chalks, it turned out green! (lol) She is now a beautiful brunette!
I distressed the edges of the image using a pink Ink It Up inkpad.
The ribbon was a bargain buy from Imag-e-nation!
£1 for a card with 4 or 5 different ribbons!
I made a border using a multi function punch and distressed it with the same pink.
I then matted & layered using lightweight blue card & the lovely Flora papers by Lilly Bimble
My base card is a white scalloped square.

The sentiment is a freebie from Sentiments4you, it was cut out with a scalloped circle nestie & I again distressed the edges with pink . It was mounted on foam tape to give it a bit of dimension.

The flowers and leaves are from Sweetpea Polly's Crafty Things on ebay.
Thank you soo much for stopping by. I do hope you have time to join in with our Spring Challenge over at The Crafty Pad.
