Spring Has Sprung

I made this card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week. I had this fairy, Sprout, from Paper Makeup Stamps (a newer stamp company on the block) already colored and waiting to jump onto this sketch! Isn't she pretty? I love these stamps! This is a new one in the collection of eight fairies so far.

Sprout is colored with various copic markers, which I have listed in the Recipe below. I pulled out this retired SU dp called Linen Prints because it had these earthy tones and I used those colors to color the image. She has shimmer all over her from a Sakura Clear Star gelly roll pen. Fairies should be shimmery, right? The ribbon is retired (sigh) SU satin chocolate chip. I hope they bring this back in the next catalog. It's so lucious! The base of the card is Apricot Appeal and the layer under the ribbon is also Linen Prints in a Cameo Coral color. I pierced the paper at the bottom to the sentiment (stamped in Chocolate Chip) from Spring Has Sprung by Whipper Snapper. I had never even opened this set much less used it! I must have purchased it last year around Easter and never got around to using it. Cute set. Well, that's about it. I have another post below, so be sure to scroll down and thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
