Spring Trends by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps

Hi friends, and welcome to my first DT post of this year for The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog (#573).  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday.

This week's theme is NEW BEGINNINGS.  My card features the delightful Spring Trends image by The Paper Shelter Digital Stamps.  This little lady has started her new year by purchasing some new clothes and shoes.  Perhaps I should follow suit!  LOL 

I coloured the image and the background (which I drew) with Copic markers and Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. 

For more inspiration by the other Design Team members, please visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.   And, while you are there, why not join in the fun?  There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs.

That's all from me today.  I thank you for visiting, and I hope you have a wonderful day.  Happy crafting, Lori xx
