Spring has sprung - all least it has for some challenges ...

It has been so lovely these past few days, it does feel almost spring-like, until you pop outside the door into the biting wind.

This is another first for me - in that I have used Copics to colour this Penny Black image.  I have been practicing - and hopefully it is coming right, though I am sure that there is loads to improve.
I have used the Sketch and Stash Challenge no. 30, for this card. 

I am also entering it for the following challenges:
I decided to keep the background paper plain as there is so much going on in the stamped image.  The punching has been done with Martha Stewart punches, and I have recycled the little punch outs from the pop-up butterfly to add to the card.

My embellishments are Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, a Prima flower, both of which I have added stickles to, and punched leaves, with Dew Drops added as well.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your comments.
