A Spring Note





Korin Sutherland has a great sketch challenge today on SCS, so I combined that layout with the colors in the ColourQ challenge by Arielle: Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Old Olive, Baja Breeze, White. Those colors scream SPRING so I knew I wanted to use flowers and birds! I love playing with PTI's Blooming Button Bits set...so easy to add their gorgeous vintage buttons. The bird is paper-pieced with an Opaline half pearl added for his eye. The Melon Mambo panel was stamped in the same color ink using the Verve BG polka dot stamp. It's a wintry scene here in VA with another snowfall last night of several inches. I'm hoping my concentration on spring cards will speed up its arrival...one can hope, right?

STAMPS: PTI Blooming Button Bits, Verve Accent Notes & Bountiful Backgrounds, Hero Arts Decorative Birds
PAPER: Melon Mambo, So Saffron, Old Olive, Baja Breeze, White
INK: Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Memento Tuxedo Black
ACCESSORIES: PTI vintage buttons, SU Oval scallop & Scallop punches, SU scallop border punch, BasicGrey opaline half pearl, CB, Dotted Swiss EF
