First Day of Spring.....

Today is the first official day of spring AND it is my big sister's birthday! (Happy Birthday Lisa! Love you!)

 I have a Crafty Secret's card to share with you today.  I hadn't colored with my Copics in awhile and thought it was high time I dust those babies off and use 'em!  I think maybe I am a bit rusty....but all in all I was pleased with the results.  This sweet image is part of the new Sing For Joy set by Crafty Secrets.  I used a  Spellbinder's Label's fourteen die and kraft paper behind the image and a scalloped rectangle for the main image. 

I created my own little stick pin and added it to my tied ribbons.  The ribbons themselves have a pearl and two rhinestones to gussy it up a bit.  
I am so glad you stopped by today!  Your visits are always noticed and appreciated!
Have a great day!

I should be so "rusty" - your Copic skills are awesome - as are your layering, glittering, and stick pin building skills! Such a sweet and precious card!
