Spring Is In The Air!

...........I wish lol!
It's not stopped snowing here all morning much like the rest of the UK
I am so pleased we did the present run up to Lancashire last weekend instead of this
One of my sons has phoned from Bolton to say he has never seen so much snow and the M6 is gridlocked

Anyway on to my card
I have used the sketch below which I posted yesterday
I couldn't find many challenges not Christmas releated but found 3

I have used 'Spring Chloe' and coloured her with a mixture of 'Prisma Pencils' & ProMarkers
Chloe has been stamped with Memento Ink 'Rich Cocoa' this makes the image appear much softer than stamping in black
I paper pieced her Jacket
The DP is my own design which can be found in a post below as a freebie
I have also used
Flowers & Ribbon from Stash
