Spring Birds ~ CCMC604, IB116, PP482

Hello stampers!  Today's card is for Create with Connie and Mary's Sketch Challenge #604.  
I also used the inspirations from Inspired By #116, and The Paper Players #482 of Spring flowers.
I actually had the die cut with the colored birds laying around on my desk for several weeks.  I had originally colored it for another challenge and decided I didn't like it for that one.....but for this one it worked out perfectly!  I love being able to use my cast away pieces!  Everything was colored with Smokey Slate, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake, and Pool Party Blends.  I added a Flirty Flamingo colored flower with leaves to the corner of the main panel, as well as some sliver thread to add a bit more interest.  
Nothing says spring (or summer) more than gingham check, so that's what I went with for my background panel.  I also stamped the Pool Party base with Versamark flowers for a very subtle background accent.

Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
