Spring Pastels

Good evening!  I thought I would share one of the many crafting things that I have been working on lately.  I made this for this weeks Elphine House Australia challenge.  Which just so happens to be a Spring/Pastel color challenge.  I'm enjoying all the pastels that I've been seeing around blogland lately. 
Spring always reminds me of a fresh new beginning and a new start.  Which reminds me, I was so excited to see my very first patch of those crazy dandelion flowers that grow all over the place during the spring/summer months.  It's funny how such simple things in life can create such joy when you see them start popping up each spring.


Well enough of my "spring time fever" talking...  How about a peek at my card?

  

I used one of Elphine House Australia's newest stamps for this card.  She is called "Carrie Swan Princess"  and a princess she certainly is.  Isn't she beautiful?

I colored her using Copic Markers, Colors that I used were (E00, E50, E51, E53, E55, E95, R43,  R81, R83, R85, B12, B41, V0000,V01, C00, C1, C3, YR04, YG67, YG11, YG03) 
I then added some baby blue stickles to her wings, and the water beneath the swan.  The sentiment was computer generated, and the border around the image as well as the flower underneath the Prima Roses are from Magnolia Doo-Hickey dies.  Paper is from K&Company, and the rest was just odds and ends that I had in my stash.
