Christmas In The Spring with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today brings the new challenge at the

our very Talented Tracie has chosen the theme this week, but before I move on Tracie is now creating some lovely digital papers and these can be bought here at the Secret Crafter On line Shop do pop and take a look as they are so pretty.

The theme Tracie has chosen this week is 

Christmas In Spring

what a great theme, I tried to make this one using Spring colours.  I just had to use one of the Secret Crafter Manga images, these are only available from the Secret Crafter and can be purchased as a digi or a clear polymer.  I have used Ice Skating Couple, I love colouring these.

So here is my design team inspirational piece 
The base colour and contrast is a vibrant lime green, and I have compliment this with some gorgeous papers.  The ribbon is from stash, the sentiments are from MSE.  The edges have all been distressed and glittered up.  

Here is a close up of the image

The image is coloured with copics and a clear glitter sakuro pen with a white gel pen to highlight.

Do pop and take a look at the other inspirational pieces of the design team.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges

Digi Doodle - Ribbon and Bows
DYSU - Sparkle and Bling
The Pixie Cottage - Sketch and/or sparkle
