Swing Into Spring

Hello and welcome to the SNSDC46. This week our challenge is to "think spring." I decided to use this SNSS pre-colored Swing Gretchen image because she's already swinging into spring! I added a Memory Box willow branch die cut and added some punched leaves done with an EK fern punch. The green border was done with an EK punch and I sponged the sky in with Ranger tumbled glass ink. I added the sentiment and a blue flower with a brown gemstone in the center. The background dsp is by Memory Box. I see this image and wish I was a kid again......swinging higher and higher :)
You don't have to use SNSS to play along with our challenge, but we love seeing them when you use them. You are required to use a digi image for our challenges however, so please keep that in mind. As always, if you play along all month with us, you're eligible for a great prize at the end of the month, so what are you waiting for? Think spring and come have some fun with us :)

such a pretty card, Carol. I love how you made your leafy tree and I sure that punch has to go on my wish list. Another winner girlfriend.
