MMSC94 -- Bird Cluster

Good Morning!  Here's my take on today's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #94 (MMSC94).  Since I can't wait for Spring, I thought I'd jumpstart the season with something soft and springy.    Besides the gorgeous weather, the return of all the birds and flowers are among my favorite things of the I tried to incorporate both into my design.

My image is a new one from the "priscillastyle" Store.  It has just the look I wanted for this card.  Coloring was done with Copics, and I heat embossed the birdies with clear embossing powder.  I embellished my card with the help of punches and dies; finishing touches include pearls and a big flower.

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Stamp Something -- March Digi Day  -- Use something digi ( All pattern papers as well as my image are digital.)
Crafty Purple Frog Challenge -- Things with Wings
Delightful Challenges -- Welcome Spring

Supplies:  Stamps -- Bird Cluster by "priscillastyles" Store; Paper -- SU! digital designer series papers, PTI select white, generic white base; Ink -- computer, Copic Markers for coloring, VersaMark pen; Accessories -- clear EP, SU! top note die, Sizzix branch w/leaves die, MS leaves and bird punches, pearls and flower from my stash.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
