Spring Has Sprung

A few weeks ago, I was so lucky to be the random winner of all of Flourishes March release stamps!  I was so happy to receive them and now I can enter more of their challenges! Here is the gorgeous photo inspiration for their Spring Has Sprung challenge:

Using 2 of my new sets, Spring Has Sprung and Lenten Rose, here is my submission, using the required colors of grass green, robin's egg blue, and daffodil yellow:


To me, a big part of spring here in NE Ohio is the reappearance of our birds, and a bird's nest is a wonderful symbol of rebirth and spring for me.  Here are some detail pictures showing these images:



I'd also like to enter this into Verve's March Diva Challenge: Color Me Spring.

supplies: white cardstock, scraps of BoBunny (green dot) and October Afternoon The Thrift Shop dps, Flourishes Spring Has Sprung and Lenten Rose (sentiment) clear stamps, versafine onyx black ink,paper doily, colored pencils, aqua satin ribbon
