Smell Like Dirt



Hey all! Here's a card I made for today's SCS Color Challenge and Karen G's Sweet Sunday Sketch. The image and sentiment are from my new OCL Hoppin' Into Spring set. I colored the image with Copic markers and added a little bit of Platinum Stickles to the dirt. I can't wait 'til it's time to plant flowers again....c'mon spring!

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

I love this card, mostly, because I so agree with that quote! I'm a gardener myself, so I'm saving this quote in case I ever need to use it on a card. Love all the lavender, the embossing folder, and the cute bow!

Butternut Sage Designs said...

this is so pretty, purple is rarely used and it is such a soothing and ethereal color. You have done a fabulous job with this sketch, and made me smile!

Vicki said...

Gorgeous!!

Jo Bear said...

Beautiful!! Gorgeous colours. Purple is my fav colour but I rarely use it for cardmaking - I don't know why that is (?). Especially when it looks so soft & soothing & pretty like your card.
