It's Spring!


April is on the doorstep and Spring's promise is in the air. Such a beautiful time of year with all the soft colors mixed with the vibrant shades of purple and red. My card reflects the soft side and while these are sparrows, I chose to make them bluebirds. My challenges are all from SweetnSassy Stamps: Korin's Friday sketch on PCP, Sandy's March challenge to use any shades of pink, yellow and green and the DT Monday challenge to use pink/brown(my choice) or pink/orange. The stamp is from Chris' "His Eye is on the Sparrow", unknown dsp, SU Close to Cocoa, cs and ink, watercolor paper, SU markers, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Creamy Caramel, Apricot Appeal,Certainly Celery, Mellow Moss and Bashful Blue. I also used White Gel pen for the dots and Stickles for sparkle! This card also qualifies for the SCS Limited Supplies challenge to celebrate the 1st day of Spring. Now if it would get a little warmer, I'd be so happy! Yes, I know it's still March, but I can dream! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
