Spring Challenge! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Spring is in the air! least it is on the blog....ha!  Artful Inkables is hosting a "Spring" challenge.  So I pulled out bright colors - not typical for me - and went to town!

Girlfriends!   Does this sing Spring to you?  I used the really, really pretty stamp set, "Chrysanthemum".  Now, please excuse my coloring.  I am really, really trying.  I used my Copics here.  I wanted a nice bright yellow ribbon but did not have one (hard to believe!).  Then I remembered (light bulb moment)....color your ribbon with Copics!  OMG....this could not have been easier.  The marker just slid over the satin ribbon....I LOVE it!!!  Don't know if you can tell, but the background is stamped in Citrus Leaf with the leaf stamp that accompanies the flower.  The sentiment is from "A Bird's Song."

Now why don't you join us in the challenge?  Here's the scoop:

* You are not required to use AI stamps, but if you have them, we'd love to see you use them! **IF YOU USE AI STAMPS, YOU GET 2 ENTRIES FOR YOUR CREATION! JUST ENTER YOUR NAME/LINK TWICE ON MR. LINKY!!!
