Hamlet Pig wit think spring

I'm back with my last post for the night... wow it's long blogging lol  This time I'm here to share with you a little card that I did for the great progressive challenge over at From the heart stamps.  If you played last month you will have gotten this sweetie (actually a big set of digis and sentiments).  And if you didn't and you spend 10$ in the store you get it for free!  So a great deal to get started with this.  The images are sooo cute it's really fun to play.

So for my card I used the Hamlet pig wit think spring!  So looking forward to spring.  And today as I was out, it was cold but it smelled like spring!  Or maybe it was just me wishing....rofl

I used some of my scrap pieces of paper to make this card YAY for me!  I added a button from my stash as well as some twine.  I used my fabulous banners framelits dies from Stamping up.  I also used my grand circles from Spellbinder.  And I did some faux stitching around.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics.  I used some salty ocean distress ink to do the sky.  The great sentiment is from Create with TLC.  It was supposed to be for St-Valentine's day.. but I forgot to use it then... and I figured it was perfect for this card.
 Since I was using a From the Heart image I followed their great sketch for the week:
