Spring Card Just For FUN!

I saw this picket fence stuff at Walmart and grabbed it thinking I could make a card or something from it. The card evolved as I was making it and this is what I ended up with. My DH who NEVER comments on my cards (just grunts) said..."wow that is really cute." He saw me cutting out a sun because I thought the top of the card was too empty...and he said NOOOO it looks good like that don't overcrowd it. So I left the sky empty...kinda like it is in real life. I really wanted to add a cloud or too but I left it alone. After I looked at the pics I realised that there was a drip or something on the 'dirt', so I will have to add another critter.

I did the background by sponging on light blue and then used post-it's to mask the 'dirt'. then I sponged brown inks on the ground and darker inks on the sky...inspired by Michelle Zindorf's blog (although I sure could OT use the brayer..believe me I have tried.)

I used CTMH's Dainty Thoughts, Ms Gardner, and Wonderful Charms SS's. I also used some Sassy Strands for my 'vine'. Everything is colored with Copic's.
Now I need to find a challenge to enter the card in LOL.

When should I expect this card in the mail? LOL! This is awesome. I wish I had a tenth of the creativeness you have. Your DH is right. Nothing else needed. Maybe you should submit it for publication? Just a thought IMHO.
You go girl! Have a wonderful Easter.
