Think Spring

I got in another set of challenges for the week!  This time the simple, lovely sketch by Cecile at Freshly Made Sketches, paired with the vibrant colors at the Color Throwdown!

 I disagree with that Punxsutawney Phil down there in Pennsylvania! Spring feels like it's right around the corner with these colors, so I made a "Think Spring" card using PTI's Sweet Brushed Birds (again!) and a sentiment from Cutaway Tags: Spring...

I stamped the birds in yellow and hot pink, then made a colorful rainbow wreath with an old favorite, PTI's "Wreath for All Seasons."  I stamped the branch in green, then added berries in pink, yellow, and blue, with some added yellow berry bursts along the corners of the window.

For a bit of texture, I used the Vineyard Cover Plate over the top, and cut a Memory Box branch die in white for the birds to perch on.  The birds are shimmered with a Wink of Stella pen, and the berries are dotted with a Sakura Glaze pen.

Have a Sunny Superbowl Sunday (say that five times fast).  I'm going to lend my support to the Eagles JUST THIS ONCE since the Bills aren't in it :)!
