The Milky Way

Woah, I am so glad that I finished my card design or rather assignment of the day before Cinderella turned into her rags. It's good not to fret over anything by midnight ;)

Today's card design requires Dots, Spring Colours, no Squares, 'Thank you' element and this sketch...

These requirements are according to the challenges I chose to enter for this wonderful Monday :
One Stitch At A Time - Anything But Square 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch #89
Crafty Creations - Thank you
Charisma Cards - Spring Has Sprung
Do you Stack Up - Dots

Here's how the card turned out...

Stamps: 'Thank you' Sentiment (May Hughes)
Paper: Cream Card, Pink Card, 5"x7" Opalescent Pastel Green Card (Royal Langnickel),  The Spring Stack (DCWV)
Ink: Light Blue (Caroles Craft), Old Paper (Distress), Fine Line Drawing Pen (Letraset)

Accessories: 1.5cm Satin Rose Ribbon Brown, Buttons
Tools:Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars), Multi Frames MDF020 (Nellie's), Ornamentel Bigz Die (Tim Holtz)

I wasn't too sure what colours should Spring be. I supposed it is colourful and happy? But oh well, using papers from The Spring Stack by DCWV helped me decide on that. The background even have sentiments like spring day, fly a kite, rainbow, sunny, bloom, spring has sprung and etc.

Although DCWV has this colours for Spring Stack but they do seem like sweet milky colours to me. I think this card design is also suitable with a different sentiment like 'Baby Girl' too ;)
