PPA- A Theme Challenge

A brief break from IRISH LOVE week because I decided to enter my very first challenge and "play along" at the Pals Paper Arts stamping challenge this week.

Here are the directions given...
Welcome to our theme challenge: Spring
With Spring less than 3 weeks away, what better way to welcome it than with a Spring theme challenge. This can be anything Spring-related; flowers, colors, Easter, anything that makes you think "Spring."

And here is what I made!

What do you think???
I used the AWESOME new Two-Step Bird Punch to make the cute little bird and branch and the cute cute "a *note* of appreciation" stamp from the Picture This hostess stamp set I got for FREE (and you can, too! see my hostess club info on the left) in the current Occasions Mini to make the little bird's spring song fly into the air.

You can make it, too!
- Cardstock is Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla, Old Olive and Rose Red.
- The Two-Step Bird Punch, of course! I let the wing fly a bit to add more dimension by only applying snail adhesive onto the top part and then gently bending up the bottom part of the wing.
- Use your Bashful Blue and Old Olive Stampin' Write markers to make the cute little music notes. Just color the note part to make more music, then color the whole stamp to get your sentiment on there.
- Don't forget! A matching envelope is a must. I used Bashful Blue cardstock stamped with the cute little branch from the Always stamp set.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.... IRISH LOVE week designs will be back tomorrow!!
