Spring is in the air

Well it is if you ignore the chill wind and stand in the sunshine!!!
 But I must not complain, the daffodils and tulips are blooming and our garden is beginning to green up nicely so I guess that means our little amphibian friends will start appearing soon.

Ribbon from stash
This card actually started out as an experiment to see if I could use Copics on paper meant for acrylic paint.
It does have an interesting texture and yes it does present a challenge when blending but overall I have to say it works quite well.
