Bloggers' Challenge - Nature

This week's Bloggers' Challenge is to make a card with anything to do with nature. I immediately reached for this plate of stamps called Birds of a Feather from Artistic Outpost! I am also posting my card at Artistic Outpost's May Referral Program.

I recently watched Tim Holtz in a video and I am trying to learn how to use Distress Inks. I stamped my main image in black ink over top of a piece of cardstock that was inked with Distress Inks. I decided to add lots of black to my card to really make the images and sentiment pop on the spring green card blank. Really loving the Poly Clay product I purchased recently. I may never buy brads again! I decided to add a musical note charm to my card to signify all the singing going on with the birds right now. As the sentiment says, "spring is here!" Thanks for stopping. Yvonne
