A touch of Spring

We had a warmer March than April so far.  While the days have been nice, the nights have brought really cold temperatures.

In honor of spring's arrival, I made this easel card.  I have also entered it in a challenge!
The challenge is over at Lily Pad Cards.

Greetings, y’all! Are you ready to play? Kathy’s given us bright and happy colors – just perfect for Easter!!!

I love the spring colors and decided to try this one.  I used a digital image of lilies that I had and after coloring them with colored pencils, I cut the images with my Cuttlebug and my Spellbinders Labels 4.  The sentiment is computer generated.  After printing it, I used a smaller Labels 4 die and then colored it while still in the die using Distress ink.

The background paper is from a card stock pad I purchased years ago and is sparkly and glittered.  I added Stickles to the lilies to give them some shine too.

This photo shows the layers and the stickles a little better.

I have also entered this card in the easel card challenge at The Cuttlebug Spot.
You have to check out all the fun things going on over there too!

I hope you like my card.  Feel free to comment and/or become a follower!
