Birds and blossom


Morning everyone. I'm here with a mid month reminder for our April Challenge at 
The theme is Spring or Anything Goes
sponsored by Crafty Individuals.
There is a lovely mood board to use if you wish

I took my inspiration from the bird, blossom and colours.
The little birds and birdhouse are Molly Blooms stamps I have had for ages, coloured with Copic Markers, the clouds are stencilled. The flowers are stamped and embossed onto pink cardstock and fussy cut, it's an even older wood backed Magenta stamp. The background panel was made by smooshing Distress Inks over a square of white card  and some added stencilling.
For more inspiration and details of the prize on offer please hop over to
