Gardening Elves

It will be a while before any gardening gets started around here, but these guys seem to be right into it 🙂  This image is from The Paper Shelter, and is titled Spring Elves.  I colored it up with my Copic and SN markers, with a few touch ups in the clouds, after my blue markers decided to dry out!! 🙁  As it is a rather involved image, I chose to keep the paper patterns simple, and went with some DCWV sheets from a pad that I got recently.  I die cut a small smile and brought out a bit more of the bright pink in the image with some Nuvo drop accents 🙂  I used this fabulous sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 as my inspiration for the layout
