Puddle Jumping in Spring

Hi all,

I am playing along with a challenge this week on the Cute Card Thursday blog.  This is their 154th challenge, and they want us to make a spring-inspired project!  Woo hoo!  I am so ready for spring - I can't take much more of the wind and the slush and the snow...

Here's my card:
I chose to go with a very Clean & Simple (CAS) layout this time.  My card base is PTI White, then I have a piece of Kraft coloured DSP from SU's old Textiles Specialty pack, matted with Basic Black, and the corners were rounded with my punch.
On the Kraft piece, I used my Label 4 Nesties to emboss a frame, and I added some random stitching with my Janome Sew Mini machine. 
I also added an SU rub-on to the left side.

I printed the BRAND SPANKING NEW Puddle Hoppin Tia from Some Odd Girl onto PTI White CS!  Kristy just released a whole whack of adorable images on March 1, and you have GOT to check them out if you haven't already!
I coloured her with Copics, cut her out with a thin white border around, and mounted her on with foam dots.  I added some Crystal Effects to her umbrella and her hair to look like rain drops - some fun texture!

Don't forget - we always have a challenge running over on the SOG blog, and there are a lot of other fun things going on too!

That's it for today - hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
