The cycle of life...time marches on and the season unfolds. Easter is behind us and spring is certainly upon us. This week at Creative Inspiration Wednesday Challenge Blog, we are challenged to make a card/project incorporating the colors blue, green and brown. My imagination took hold of the green and blue and I had no choice - it was going to be a spring theme for me. I went searching through my stamp collection for something "growing", but just couldn't find the right thing. So I started combing the vintage sites and found this lovely vintage blue bird print from The Graphics Fairy. I printed the words "A song of spring" on it by running it through my printer a second time. I also used a spring BINGO card from Sugar Creek Hollow and a vintage sheet music from Heidi at Shabby Chic Papirskatter. The DP is from SU's Porcelain Prints and I used a Verve flourish stamp to stamp around the edge in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I stamped around the edge of the Chocolate Chip as well and clear embossed it for texture. I made a chipboard flower using the SU punch and punching five layers of white CS and gluing them together to achieve chipboard thickness. Then I ink distressed the edge and stamped the flourish around each the edge of each petal in Vintage Photo and covered it with chunky glitter. I topped it off with two pink silk flowers that I sprayed with Glitter Mist. I absolutely LOVE the apple green satin ribbon. It's from Arts.licious (Chatter Box) and I have been hoarding it. I only have one small piece left :(.
