Signs of Spring Bitten By The Bug challenge

It's Sunday night, that means it's time to reveal another challenge from Bitten By The Bug! This week, Regina is asking you to use the word SPRING from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. This is such a cute cut! How could I not set a Tilda right on top of it? And I used one from the new Spring Club kit too. I also used the spring tree from the Easter collection which is available at Magnolia-licious.
The papers I used are just a little sneak peek of papers I received in the AWESOME kit that will be available tomorrow night over at Sweet Arts Paperie. They are going to debut the kit on their awesome site. Be ready though, cause their kits are limited and I don't see how you can pass this up!

The stamps were colored with my Copic markers, and the circle and scalloped circle the tree is on was cut out with my Nestabilities. The little tag was cut with a Cuttlebug die. I use that die SOOOO often for small little accent tags. I had a REALLY hard time getting the colors of Tilda to match the background papers. No matter what mixture of blues and greens I used, I couldn't get it right. So sorry for the clash of colors. And of course it tells me that I need more Copic colors!! LOL! I feel a shopping spree coming on!

So that's it for my card for tonight. Please be sure and visit Bitten By The Bug to see what the rest of the awesomely talented DT came up with! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!
