Paper Sweeties Inspiration Challenge #17 - Polka Dot Love

Can you believe it's March already?  The weather here is still very cold, but at least the sun is shining and the grey skies seem to be gone.  The beginning of the month marks a new challenge at Paper Sweeties.  Check out this beautiful inspiration photo Debbie picked for you to play with this month.   It looks like Spring doesn't it?  I love the soft pastel colors, and the nest with the soft blue eggs.   You can work with the design or the color, or both - just work with what inspires you.  I was completely smitten with the polka dot rain boots and that's what got me thinking about a set I haven't used in a while - "Spring is Here".  
I stamped Sophie with Memento Ink so my Copic markers wouldn't smear.  I die cut her with an oval shape.  Next I stamped her outfit on patterned paper, fussy cut it,  and glued it on top of the stamped image of Sophie.  I colored her pockets, and glued a little rose on her hat to cover a bit of the stamped bow that was showing.   I finished with layers of paper and trim and a fancy bow.  I love that sweet sentiment !  Seriously what's a girl to do?!  You just have to keep your sunny side up right?
