Hello Spring! IPC 67

Hello and welcome to a new Inky Paws Challenge
This time around we have one of my favorite challenges!
 It's a sketch challenge!

Since we've been having some unusual bit of cold in our area.
 I waned to do something fun and playful and just bright and cheery.

Hello Spring a card by Diane Morales | Hello Spring Stamp Set by Newton's Nook Designs

The idea for this card came from organizing my 6x6 paper.
I came upon the HELLO paper, that you see in the background.
The colors on this paper gave me the idea for this card.
I started out by trimming that paper and placing it on a cardstock base.

To create the background of the card. I wanted to do something different,
 so I started going through my Newton's Nook Dies
 and I came across the Land Borders Die Set
 I chose the Wavy Hill Background and just die cut pieces of that
 die out to make the back details of the sketch.

NOTE: the color seen here changed when I staged the card

For the tag portion on the sketch
I just received the Cloud Sky Stencil. I use Versamark to ink the clouds
 onto white cardstock, heat embossed with clear embossing powder,
and then inked in with Broken China Distress Ink.
Then, I stamp out my bunny from the Hello Spring Stamp Set colored the bunny
 and flowers in and added some glossy accents to the flowers.

Finally, I assembled everything onto the card base card base.

I love the way that this card came out and it’s kind of awesome
the whole idea came from a piece of paper from my stash.

I hope this inspired you to get you PAWS INKY.
