Spring blog hop

My card today is for the Sweet N Sassy stamps customer blog hop. The theme this month is to think spring. Believe me, I am certainly thinking of spring :). I used the brand new Rainy Day Bethany stamp set for my card. This image is also available as a digi. The layout of my card uses the Sweet Stop sketch from last week.


Isn't she a cutie? I colored her with copics and accented with stickles. I distressed the edges and added Picket Fence crackle paint to some of the edges also. You can see a little of the sparkle in the close up below.


For some dimension I popped up the umbrella, boots, butterfly, bow, and flower. The photo below show a better view.
