Is It Spring Yet?

For those of you that don't know it, I live in the Yukon.  That means that I'm not going to see spring until around May.  This is my first winter here and I am COLD!  I've asked Santa for more long johns!  They are a daily requirement up here!  So I decided to bring a little spring into my craft room! 

I created this card for two challenges this week!  One is for the colour combination at Just Us Girls.  I just love the colour combo!  So light and peaceful!  My Mom will love it, she thinks I use too much black (I think that's been a problem since I was a teenager).  The second challenge is an Anything Goes Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp!  I just love their site!  I've just created my wishlist and will be making my order in a couple of weeks!  I dyed the doily by smearing SU's Tempting Turqoise Ink onto my Craft Sheet and spritzed over it with Pearl Glimmer Mist.  I then dragged the doily through it over and over until it was completely covered.  It has a beautiful glistening pearl finish!  On a piece of white cardstock I layered masks from Tim Holtz's Timeworks Mask set and sponged ink over it, changing to lighter colours as I removed layers.  I stamped the bird from SU's Always with Versamark and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I tied some white taffeta ribbon around it and topped the whole thing off with a Dyed Enamel Charm

I hope you have a fantastic day!
