Spring flowers...

It started as a very dark and rainy day and I was even more depressed because I had to clean the house.
Then, it turned out to be a sunny day and this made me happy and gave me the input to make a spring card.

I wanted to enter my beloved Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge: after I won the Grand Prize last week I wanted to enter a card this week too, even if I have lots of things to do which do not include cards...

But I've managed to make this and, once back from school, my daughter wanted to play by herself and I managed to color another couple of digis and hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to finish some more cards. There were so many interesting challenges this week and I'm so sad I cannot enter them and enjoy the fun!

Anyway, this was the sketch this week:

The sponsor is DigiStamp Boutique and I've used one of their digis to make this card:

I've used a white card, then I added a DCWV pastel green paper, a digi paper with small flowers which I found years and years ago somewhere I don't remember and another digi paper with white dots from Pink Petticoat. The digi is colored with watercolor pencils, I added some yellow glitter to it and some pearls here and there on the card.
The ribbon with flowers is another buy I made many years ago and I don't remember the brand.

I'm entering this card in the DigStamp Boutique monthly competition, too.

Fresh spring colors and a flower: spring come quickly!
