Enough with the snow... I'm ready for Spring

Okay, I know that it is only the first part of January but we still have about two foot of snow on the ground and I for one have had enough.  Since I can't do anything about the weather I decided that I would just create a Springy card, besides I have been wanting to create a card with this awesome Mummu;s bike image from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Mummu is colored with copic markers and sponged with SU blue bayou ink.  If you take a close look at the denim skirt I used my copic blender pen to give the denim effect on it,
Because I wanted a little vintage look to the card I used a half doiley that I had picked up at an antique store in Kansas last fall.  Exactly what I was looking for.  I added a key tied with a sheer ribbon in the lower left corner and prima flowers in the upper right corner. 
A trio of dew drops in the opposite corners and I was happy with the results. 
Thanks for stopping by.
I am going to try to get another card posted tomorrow before I go to work and then it may be a day or two before I have time again. 
I am trying to get my DT cards done between Dr. appointments and work and there are only so many hours in the day. 
Thanks to everyone who left heart warming comments on my post concerning the loss of my Moppett, you have no idea how much it meant to me that you understood my loss, and for your support :)

See you tomorrow,

Happy Coloring
