Spring is (really) coming

Here is card that I created for my Mom (who is still half-buried in snow). I used a wonderful digital stamp image from Tales from Pollycraft called "Follow the Leader", along with Basic Grey papers, to make a card that just feels like Spring to me. I only used 4 Copic colours and I added more shading than normal.


As usual I'm entering this card in a few challenges:
I linked my card on the Play Date Cafe challenge (which was to use light yellow, deep yellow and white) although I think I actually used too much green to technically qualify. But using lots of yellow is such a departure for me that I wanted to share my result.

  2. I'm with you with the yellow, isn't it weird that some colours are just so hard to use loads of? Love this card :)
