Tami posted about a challenge today on splitcoast stampers. The challenge is on her daughter's blog.

is the challenge on Aly's blog if anyone would like to see it.

There's still a few hours left if anyone would like to play along. The challenge is a sketch challenge.

I used a digi image from bugaboo stamps. I thought this image would make a really cute Easter or spring card.

I printed the image and colored it with my SU markers. The ink was starting to smear when began my coloring. So I printed another image then I lightly went over it using my heat gun and I have to say I was very surprised, it really worked! So if anyone is having problems using digi images due to the ink smearing, try heat setting it first.

I punched out a few flowers using my SU Spring Bouquet flower punch. In the center of my flowers I added a small circle and then on top of that another tiny punched circle. The leaves on my flowers were punched using my new Martha Stewart Branch punch and in the lower right hand corner I added some punched corners.

My background is embossed using my cuttlebug and D'Vine embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend so far!

Beautiful card! LOVE the perfect bow (as always) and the scallop around the image. The image is super cute and I LOVE the row of flowers around it.
