Nothing is as Beautiful as Spring

This is a card made today for a lottery on one of my groups. The theme was children and I don't have a lot of stamps that deal with children so I picked this clip art image that looked very spring like (which I can't remember where I got it). I now put the name of the web site that I get stuff from right in the file name so I will know who to credit for providing it. Sorry to the originator.

This was a colour image that I changed up the colour of the dress and bonnet because it was pretty light. Mounted on black then pink cardstock. The verse is a PSX stamp inked with Golden Mist Opalite Ink from stamped on black cardstock then Gold Sparkle Pearlex brushed over it. This was then layered to pink like the image. Both these were attached to a base card made from Stardream which is a shimmery white with gold highlights. The flourish is from the set called Flourishes V:1 and was stamped using Versa Fine Black from . However when held at an angle the flourish looks like brushed gold. This is also not a standard size card but rather 4 1/2 in. x 6 1/2 in.
