Wonderful colors of spring.

 Here is a card i created for Easter/spring.  I have found myself lately, craving the beautiful colors and creatures of spring but not been seeing much of that in this neck of the woods.  Birds are the sweet sounds of a fresh new spring.  So that being said i had to use a bird to give me some enlightenment into the beauties of our warmer weather and the approaching Easter holiday.

I used a rubber bird stamp borrowed from my neighbour and good scrapping friend.  I stamped it on a wood grain piece and adhered it to a piece of corrugated kraft paper that i inked the edges on.  The card is made from kraft card stock and a piece of flowered background paper. My embellishments are ivory twine/rope, aqua and white twine and some buttons.  The nest i made by wrapping the rope around in a circle and added 3 blue pearls.  And for the final touch i added a feather to the birds wing.
Hope this makes everyone feel like Spring!  Enjoy your day.
I have for the first time decided to enter this into some card challenges so wish me luck.
