Spring Hugs!!!

I am SOOO ready for Spring. Here is a card I created for a few challenges, and I will also be teaching this card class on March 19 at my local Stamp Store, The Stampin Post.
I used some of the new Graphic 45 paperline, Cirque. I just love the bold colors of this paper line. Although, I am terrified of clowns, so I will only use the papers that have plain patterns in this collection. I cannot even look at clowns without nightmares. LOL It is pretty terrible.
I used Tilda wants a Hug and Spring fence for this card. I masked the images together, and I just love the way they look. I tried a few new color combos on this image, and think they look great. I wanted to try to match the bold colors of the paper as much as possible.
I colored this image with copics -
Hair - C9, C7, C5, C3
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Dress - E40, E41, E42, E43
Socks - E08, E09, E04, R22
Fence - W1, W00, W3
Grass - YG03, G97, G99, G20, G24
Here is the inside of the card. I kept it simple so a sentiment could be added later. It also showcases more of the gorgeous paper. I used my Tilda Lace Doohickey die for the lace border, LOVE that thing.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Pile it on - Tri-Fold
All That Scraps - Anything Goes
Delightful Sketches - Welcome Spring
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Pixie Cottage - Spring
Cute Card Thursday - Signs of Spring
