Spring Challenge

What a week it has been!!! Our youngest and oldest son had a cold and were kind enough to pass it along to me!! I have been sick all week and have not created since last Saturday!! Talk about withdrawl!! LOL!! Along with being sick, I found out that my hours are being cut. However, I am very fortunate that I still have a job, so many others are not quite as lucky. I have a great job, a great boss at a great company, hopefully it is only temporary.
On to my card!! This card is for last Sunday's High Hopes challenge, to make an Easter or Spring card. I don't have any Easter images from High Hopes so I decided to use my Reflecting Pond and Duck Family images. Seeing ducks in the ponds screams spring to me!!! And by the way, would spring get here already!! I colored the images with my Copic markers, highlighting the ripples and along the rocks in B00. I cut the ducks out, glued them on separately and added Liquid Glass for a water look. The image was cut out using my long rectangle Nestabilites and applied to a layer of black cardstock cut out using my long rectangle scallop Nestabilites. I used a piece of dp from my Papertrey Father Knows Best Patterned paper. I wrapped a piece of Basic Gray Taffeta ribbon from SU! and tied in a knot. The base card is Basic Gray.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
