This is one of the cards I nearly threw in the bin, I love this stamp but never seem to be able to make a decent card with it, however I have persevered and finally finished it.  Think I've been a bit heavy handed with the Twisted Citrin ink but its such a lovely spring colour. Cheery Lynn doily die and Creative expression delicate fronds die.,lace flower from stash.

I'd like to enter this into these challenges

  1. This card is so lovely and does have a great Spring feel. I think I own that stamp too and have never known how to colour it. I really like the way you have coloured the bird. It looks very real!

    The inky lemony colour looks great!

  2. Very pretty springtime card, I love the bird and the bright green!

  3. I love this shade of green! It's the color of the leaf buds on the trees when they first appear. In my crayola box it was actually named Spring Green! And such a sweet little bird on her nest. Thanks for sharing this beautiful card in my Spring Flowers and Birds challenge at ~ Karen

  4. I am so pleased you persevered Joan and it's a beautiful Spring time card.

    Many thanks for sharing it with us at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges.
