Spring Green

Hello, hello, hello!  Welcome to another fabulous Wednesday.  I love Wednesdays because it means we're half way to the weekend!  =D  This weekend is especially nice because it's "spring forward" for Daylight Savings Time here in (most of) the US.  I'm so ready for spring to come, even though we haven't had much of a winter. The sooner spring gets here, the sooner summer will be here and I do love summer.  That brings me to another thing I love about Wednesdays.....new Digistamps 4 Joy challenges!  This week we have a fun one for you: 
A New Dress for Ms Spring.
We want to see cards where the predominant color is GREEN.


I used the lovely Merry the Mermaid.  Isn't she fabulous?!?  I've been eyeing this image for a while and decided this would be the perfect challenge for her.  You can find her here in the Fantasy section of the store.  She was colored with Copics.  Then I used Spica markers to outline the bubbles and Stickles to outline her scales.  The sentiment I printed out on my computer.  Some of you Disney fans might recognize the lyric from one of my favorite Disney songs...Under the Sea.  (There's something about a singing crab with an island accent that I just love. LOL)  The main background paper is from Stampin' Up.  The dot paper strips are from my stash, as are the fish and the gems.  The seaweed transparency is from K & Co.

Now, you ready to play along?  Remember, you don't need to use a Digistamps 4 Joy image to enter.  However, if you do, you get not one, not two, but THREE entries into the random draw!  Plus, you can enter three projects per challenge (as long as they are all new projects), so if you used a Digistamps 4 Joy image for all three....that would be NINE entries!!  Who can beat odds like that?  PLUS all the projects using Digistamps 4 Joy get entered into a separate contest: the DT's Choice award!  The DT will vote for their favorite and the winner will get a $6 gift certificate to the store.

Pop on over to the Digistamps 4 Joy challenge blog for inspiration from the rest of the DT and then get your craftin' on!  =D  Thanks for stopping by, and hopefully we'll be seeing you soon!

I love your card. I wonder if there are mermaids in rivers too. Since you used green, I feel like I'm looking at a river floor, not the ocean. It is simply lovely. Thanks for joining us this week at Glitter Geeks Challenges.
