Spring is in the air....

Seems like everybody is posting challenges for 'Spring' or 'Spring Colors'.
So.......I decided that was what I was going to do!  LOL

I watched about 20 You Tube video's and decided to try a 'Magic Card'.
Love the plain looking front image and the colored 'magic' that appears when you pull the ribbon slide up!

and when you pull the slide up...... It's magically in color!

Pretty simple and really cute IRL.  If your mojo is lacking, I really can't tell you enough what a help  You Tube is.  Go on over, get into the crafting and just watch!  Amazing how-to videos wiith ideas that are never ending.

Coloring:  Copic Markers
Stamping:  Memento ink, Staz-on ink
