Think Spring!

Good Morning everyone - I hope you're enjoying your weekend and having nice weather where you are! I made a card today for the "Think Spring" Customer blog hop that also fits this Sweet'nSassy sketch challenge #99 found here.
And here is the card I created......
I used the Berry Sweet Cocoa digi image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, and colored him with Copics. All the dp is from the Memory Box sugar collection (thanks Michelle). A requirement for the blog hop is to use only SnS stamps and sentiments, and since I didn't have a particular sentiment that fit this image, I created one by masking off 2 stamps from the SnS Cup of Cocoa set! Strawberries are always so sweet in early spring, and these colors remind me of spring. The mini ric-rac was from my stash, and the decorative border was done with a fancy scallop punch. The mat behind the sentiment is a bottlecap diecut from Quikutz. Gems were also from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by today - I wish you a wonderful weekend of stamping and blog hoppin'! Take good care!
