Spring Has Sprung!

  Spring is here! The weather has even shifted a bit here; getting a little warmer. Hopefully no more snow! 
  Got new stamps...again! This birdie is from the TH Artful Flight set. The collage background are pieces of one of my fav paper sets, K&Company Jubilee; regular and specialty sets. Inked the edges with DI Vintage Photo. 
  Stamped the bird on some of the Jubilee blue paper and then glued on to Grungepaper. The sentiment stamp is from Michael's $1.50 bin. Added some TH Tissue Tape here and there. I made the simple flower by tearing pieces of paper in a circle; Added some DI Vintage Photo around the edges.
  The gorgeous pink rosettes with tulle are from a local paper craft shop, The Cutting Garden. Comes in different colours.
  Here are a couple of closeups, the inside and back of the card:


Inside the card. Pattern is light enough so you can still write a message, or use a stamp

The back of the card. When I make a card now, I add paper to the back. Gives it stability if you have a lot of bling on it and it just feels finished.

Entering this Spring card in:
Simon Says Stamp and Show: Make Your Own Background

Have a great first day of Spring! Get Inky!

The colours are vibrant yet at the same time there is a beautiful soft, muted appearance to them, really lovely.
