Happy Spring

Happy Thursday to all of you.  I had planned on coloring this image for an Easter card but ran out of time.  So I decided to make it into a spring card.

This adorable image is from the  C. C. Designs' Spring Has Sprung set.  I used copics and colored pencils, and added acrylic paint to make polka dots on the sheep's hairbow.  I used Liquid Pearls for the flower centers, and followed the sketch over at Taylored Expressions.  My papers are Happy Go Lucky from My Mind's Eye ... my 6x6 pad is almost gone.  I really loved the colors in this pad and wish I had bought 2 of them :(

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful evening.

Hugs, Anita
