The House that Stamps Built Challenge

Last month I told y'all about going to the Stamp Scrap Art Tour in Columbia and what a good time I had, and about all the fun new companies and "things" I discovered.  One of these companies was Repeat Impressions.  I bought 2 sets of their Waterfall (or what they call "Flip") stamps.  I also discovered their blog The House that Stamps Built, from which they host challenges every week.  The challenges run for 2 weeks each and vary in theme.  Well, I tend to get excited when I discover new things and so I made a card, now get this... 3 weeks ago, to enter for last week's challenge, only to forget to post it & when I did remember it, I was 5 hours too late.  Not this week!  The theme for this challenge is "Spring using Pastel Colors."
The image I used on this card is a digi stamp I colored last year when I just started using Copics.  I think I had maybe 10 or 12 markers at the time.  I never used the image because I made a rookie mistake... I printed it a little too big.  (I printed a lot of digis too big when I first started using them.  Anybody else do that???)  You can see it fills up this A2 size card with little room for anything else. 
Digi Stamp by Sliekje, colored with Copics, and die cuts made using Spellbinders.
Below is the card I made for the challenge that ended last week.  It was a very nice CAS sketch challenge, just what I like and yes, there is that darn leprechaun stamp again.  It's the only St Paddy's day image stamp I've got, so "sorry."
Image Stamp is by Inkadinkadoo, sentiment stamp is by Studio G, and the embossing folder, which you can barely see, is by Lifestyle Crafts (formerly Quickutz)
Here's just a little sneak peak of some of the Flip stamps by Repeat Impressions.  More about these to come later.
Until then, wishing you....
Sunshine and Smiles,
Love and Laughter
