Dreaming of spring..........waiting for the fields to fill up with crops,  Fresh fruit and vegetables for the table.  Fresh, clean air, dirt between your fingers. picnics in the sun.    Come on spring cause it means summer is right around the corner.  This card is clean and simple.  I did use a layer because I color with copics and I didn't want the inside to show the bleed through. 

The stamp set is by OCL and called 'Bountiful Harvest'.   The coloring is with copics.  The dry embossing is with a cuttlebug folder 'Swiss Dots'.    I also did some score lines above and below the main image with my Scor-pal.  The paper is Neenah solar white and the ribbon is from JoAnns.  The brad holding the sentiment and the half pearls are from my stash.  Hint:  I only buy white half pearls.  I use my copics to color them in the exact color that I need for each card!
