House Mouse & Friends "Spring Colors"

I was invited and honored to be a Guest Designer for House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #260 "Spring Colors" and combined it with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #252.

This image was from an earlier coloring class with Jennifer Dove at The Paper Collage and all it needed was a little touch up and some blending pen on a pen leak.  Chose some bright spring colors for the background and layered with the willow green.  Added the layered sentiment and some heart embellishments.  

This inside of my card was just a border of the same background paper as on the front of my card.  

Also submitted to the following challenges:  

I was chosen as the Top Pick for this week's challenge at The Outlawz - Twisted Thursday "Fur"  

Products Used:
Design Paper
     Doodlebug Design "At the Zoo"
     CTMH Willow and White Daisy
     Stampendous "Floral Trumpet" House Mouse
     Cottage Cutz CCB-072 Wacky Stitched Square
