PoppySeed's first challenge! Spring Yellow and a MF card submission.

Good morning everyone! Is it Spring yet?
This card will also qualify for the MoxieFabWorld challenge to make a "hello" card...I only just realized this, YAY!
I made a Spring card for the very first PoppySeed challenge. The challenge requires that we use yellow, a jewel/rhinestone and a flower stamp. Check for the PTI yellow, check for the rhinestone studded flowers and check for the stamped teeny flowers from PTI Bird Watching.

I really like how this card turned out, soft and Springy.

The tree is an image from the PTI set Through the Trees. It is the first time I am using this set and I know I will be using it over and over. It is so easy to use and today, I stamped the leaves in Spring Moss, but can you imagine rocking and rolling this in several fall colours?!

The grass that I positioned below the tree is from Bird Watching, another of my favourites because it too has so many versatile pieces. On the stamp in the grass are some cute bird houses on posts, but I inked up the grass only and the post portions became flower stalks for me to top with one of the teeny flowers from the set. I coloured in the petals with a pale yellow Copic marker.
The little bird is from this same set and I stamped her in barely banana and rocked and rolled the edges in creamy caramel on a piece of velum that I had embossed in white with a tiny lacey hankerchief stamp. I then took the pale yellow marker and went over some of the bird portions for definition and added a black dot from a Spica pen for her eye. She looks just like a parrot that I saw passing through a couple of weeks ago at the market.
The borders are a MS and a SU punch. I like the two layered over each other in the vintage cream and Spring Moss, both from PTI.
The sentiment is also from the Bird Watching set and cut out using a petite oval Nestie and I cut out another in this pretty PTI yellow and used an old SU corner punch on either end to create a little sentiment holder.

Thanks for peeking in and I hope to have another Lockhart fruit card for you later, because I still have some birthday cards to make!

Cheer to Spring!
