Spring is Sprung - POSTCARD

Has Spring Sprung where you live? It sure is trying to here. We don't have any crocus blooming yet but I'm watching for them soon.

Today's Serendipity Stamps Design team has been challenged to create a postcard or something that is stamped and flat that can be mailed without an envelope. For my postcard I used SERENDIPITY STAMPS Cling set Crocus #995QCL. I colored with copic markers and then tried to give my postcard a bit of a distressed/aged look by sponging lightly with Vintage Sepia Versafine ink on the edges and then took my postcard outside and spritzed/splattered with a toothbrush dipped in Walnut Ink.
