Swinging Into Spring!

Hello everyone and I hope you are ready for a fabulous weekend!

This is a post I created for Sami's blog at   SP & Company.   I have  been invited do a "guest" post for her today while Sami is working hard at bringing great new products into her  online store just for you!     If you havent noticed yet, there are alot of new products and they just keep coming!     Stop by SP & Company and check them out!

I used one of the new April Release stamps for my card for you today.   I used the adorable new stamp called "Swinging Girl" that is a part of the  Gill Roberts Collection.   Isn't this just cute?   I also used two wonderful bttons to match my  designer paper and the pink mat for my focal image.

Copic Alcohol Ink Markers Used: 
Skin Tones:  E11, E21, E50 and a small amount of BV000 for my cast shadow.   
Hair:   C9, C7, C5, C3 and a touch of BG10.   I used a little R20 on the cheeks. 
Clothing:  RV000, RV11, RV13, an RV34
Shoes:  C7, C5, C3, C1, C0 and opaque white ink.
Flowers  V17, V8, V4, , V000 and Y19 and opaque white ink for the centers. 
Grass  G40, YG63 and G28
Background:  C1, C0, BV0000, BV00, BV01, B0000, B000, B00 and opaque white.   

I used Lucky In Love 6x6  design paper and coordinating buttons of two different sizes that will also coordinate with the new ink pads when they arrive!  I think they go fanastic with the designer paper!   I used Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die to create my layers for my focal mat and image.    I tied a bow of Spring Green Baker's Twine through the button holes and ....   it's done!   

I am linking this card with the following wonderful challenges:

I hope you enjoyed this card and remember to check out all the new and exciting products!
