Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge #153

It is time for the weekly Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge. 

The Shining Light Challenge ODBDSLC153 is to make a project that uses items that begin with the four letters of the word "spring" for your project ingredients.

This was a tough one! Here is what I used:

S: Sentiment
P: Patterned paper
I: Ribbon
N: Nested die templates
G: Garden image

I also used some spring-time papers and colors. (The funny thing is, the day I made this card it was more than 90 degrees here, which is a heat wave in my corner of the world!)

I stamped the image from The Good Seed and colored it with Copic markers. I had to fill in the dirt a bit with the markers and a black pen, so it looks a bit wonky. I am certainly not a fine artist!

I stamped a sentiment from the same set and cut it out with a nested shape. I inked it with a bit of pale green ink to tone down the white cardstock.
