I decided to keep my design fairly simple to let this combo take center stage. All I could think of with this marvelous mix was the Spring season! What better way to celebrate that, then with a sweet, little songbird? I busted out my 2-Step Bird punch (that has been very neglected recently) and got to work. I focused on a mix of patterns, texture and dimension to pull it all together. The only stamping, on the front, was (ok, I just HAVE to say it) my single, *hand stamped sentiment*. Haha, pretty fitting for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge, huh?
For the inside, I just kept the "Spring-Fling" theme going. I finally inked up my Sweet Summer stamp set and I have officially decided that I love it. How fun are those flowers? It is one of the sets from Sale-A-Bration that I earned for free. Don't forget, Sale-A-Bration is still going on for the entire month of March. Click HERE to view the catalog.
Well, that's all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave me a comment, before you go, to say hello and to let me know what you think of my card today. Also, please join us over at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week with YOUR beautiful, color creation. Have a very HAPPY day! :)
