So are you ready to see what I've come up with? Here it is...

Since I live in Ontario, Canada and we have had so much snow this year I decided to "Celebrate Spring"! I know it is still a couple weeks away, but I am so looking forward to the warmer weather and I thought a pretty card might encourage it to come a bit sooner! For this card I actually worked with 2 Meljen's Design images: "Spring Sunflowers Word Art" and "Hop Along Bunny", {which is the one you might win if you leave me a comment!}. I used Copic Markers to colour the images with. The Designer Papers are an assortment from my "Treasure Box". I hand cut the banner and hand printed the word "celebrate" using an ultra fine tipped Sharpie marker, which I also used to do all the "faux stitching". Foam pop dots were applied to the banner and flowers to give a bit of dimension to the card.
Well that's it for me. Don't forget to leave me a comment and your email address.
Now it's time for you to hop on over and visit Rae Ann , I'm sure she has something delightful to share with you.
Remember if you get lost along the way just head over to the Meljen's Design Blog and you can get back on track from there.
Happy Hopping,
