Happy Sunday,

My card today was inspired by the singing birds outside my bedroom window.  The sounds of spring are here, but the weather isn't cooperating.  I woke to a blanket of snow.  Although it looks pretty it is April, right?

The paper used for the card base is Old Lace.  I then took a piece of Pink Pirouette and ran it through the Big Shot using the Tim Holtz On the Edge Brackets Die cutting both sides.  Another piece of Old Lace was added with the focal image on top.  Glitter accents the bird and leaves.

A triple loop bow was created using pink seam binding with the center accented in an ivory flower pearl.

The oval flourish on the inside of the card was stamped in Lost Lagoon ink (stamped off first on scrap paper).  From the Heart was stamped in StazOn Timber Brown.  Sponging was done with Crumb Cake, Adirondack Latte and Pink Pirouette.  A clear Spica pen adds a little sparkle to it.

I was tempted to add something else to the card, but stopped myself.  Sometimes less is more  :-)

I think this is the perfect weather to make a savory pot roast in the crock pot with lots of vegetables.

Here's hoping your weekend has been filled with smiles.

The card is so pretty and I love the pink bow on it. I too love to hear the birds sing in the early morning hours.
