Spring Love

Spring is in the Air

Spring is so many things...
It is a brightness after the bleak of winter, the melting of snow and an abundance of everything.
It is a time for courting, of love, new beginnings, new growth, new born,
a bursting forth of flowery gardens and butterflies,
a time of colour and a time to be happy.

The first sound I hear each morning in Spring
is the chirping of birds...very loud chirping...lol
So for my card I have chosen Spring love using birds
in a natural forestry setting.
And the colour pink to add to the romance and
lightness of the season.


The stamps that I have used from Flonzcraft are  

The ink is DI of course, Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany,
and the birds coloured in with Aqua crayons with a little sparkle.

And a Martha Stewart punch and some flowers from my stash 
for some added pizzazz! 

Flonz has a generous $20 prize for one lucky entrant
which can be spent on a huge range of goodies from his on-line store.
And they are cheap...so you can get heaps of them!

The Design Team have once again come up with some
outstanding examples of how to showcase these stamps...
so please be inspired
and come join in our fun at Vintage Stamping Challenges


Enjoy!


I am entering this card into the following challenges...
