Puddles - Spring is in the air at Creative Card Challenge. our challenge this fortnight is Spring and we are sponsored by Stamp Fairy. Isn't their little Patsy just adorable splashing in the puddle? Adorable since she won't be tracking mud into my house. LOL

My DP is Painted Petal by DCWV. I love that they are bright and muted at the same time. The pad has yellows, greens, purples and blues. They are all very beautiful. I distressed all the papers with my TH distress tool.
My sentiment is a Studio G stamped with Concord Grapes distress ink. I used a portion of a SU Framelit die to get the shape. I thought the sentiment was just perfect for this splashin cutie.
My flower is made from mulberry paper and I got it from my friend at Pizzazz Aplenty. Judy's prices are unbelievable, so make sure you check her site out.

The leaves are the same DP cut with Spellbinders leaf die.
Stamp Fairy's Patsy was colored with Copics. I added Stickles to the umbrella, bow, collar and the ruffle under her raincoat.

Come splash in the puddles with us at Creative Card Crew and check our our sponsor Stamp Fairy.
