Longing for Summer

Snow flurries and up to 50 mile per hour winds today are making me long for summer. Seeing flowers, smelling fresh cut lawn, and just basking in the sun sounds really good. So, it's only January......I'll have to dream on paper.

I made a card using Too Sweet Kitty from Meljens Designs, one of my favorite digi companies.
I printed him on white cryogen cardstock and colored the cute image in with my Copic markers.

I then layered on some lime green cardstock, cut a couple of leafy branches with my Martha Stewart Punch, and layered it all together on some solid pink cardstock along with some pink plaid decorated paper. I finished off with a couple of flowers from Spare Parts.

Copic Recipe:
Kitty - N0, N1, N2, N3, N4, N5  R81
Pink Flowers -  RV04  Y38
Bell on Kitty - Y28
Grass - YG21, YG03
My sky was sponged with a Blue Vivid pad.

 I just love these pink flowers from Spare Parts. They are actually brads. I have just ordered 3 more sets!

I'm entering my card in these challenges:
Dragonfly Dreams - Thoughts of Summer (green grass, flowers, blue sky)
Words2ScrapBy - Favorite Things (use something mentioned in the song My Favorite Things- I used Whiskers on Kittens" as my inspiration.

I'm also showing my card at the Outlawz Color Challenge- you get to pick your theme and two colors besides pink from the inspiration photo. Such fun!!
