I know that winter keeps coming back in various parts of the country but how about having a card with Spring colors and flowers?  Will that bring a smile?

My card is based on the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge:

I had a lot of fun making this card.  Needless to say, this sketch is very enabling.  There are so many things we could do with the sketch.  The other thing I enjoyed a lot was to use markers as the inking medium and directly applied to the stamps, gave it a spritz  with water and stamped on regular paper.  I can't remember the last time I did this technique but I should do it more often.  It brings so many colors to one image!

Many of you love Copic markers and I am jealous of the coloring skills you possess.  I wish I knew how to identify the light source and color with shades.  Even though I am not a coloring pro, I'll pretend to be one with this technique. LOL.  This technique is fun and I'm happy with it!

My card is entering the following challenges:
