Spring is Sprung?

 Second post today:
Betty at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenged us to use some of the other stamps in our stamp sets...the ones that we might never have used. I chose to make my card with  other stamps in "Spring has Sprung"...the bird and Lily of the Valley images and a border from "Stripe and Stripes" both sets by Flourishes. I stamped my images on White CS ...the bird with Black Tuxedo ink and the floral image and border with Bamboo Leaves ink and colored with Koh-i-noor pencils with OMS and Memento Markers. I sponged with Memento Summer Sky and New Sprout after cutting out the images. I assembled my images following a sketch from The Sweet Stop Challenge. Used Bazzill Blue as card base and mats of GKD Green Grass.
Other supplies: Nesties Oval and Scalloped Oval dies.
                        Blue rose from stash.
Challenges:
Timeless Tuesday #111: Use some of the "other stamps."
The Sweet Shop Sketch Challenge: see on the right
Tuesday Throwdown: Theme is florals.
AllSorts Challenge:  Theme is Blooming Blossoms.
Wee Memories: Theme "Color Inspiration" ... your favorite colors, pictures, anything that is your color inspiration. My fave colors Blue and Green.

Wish Spring really had sprung, but it keeps snowing.....Mother Nature needs a new calendar, don't cha think??
Thanks for stopping by! Theresa
