Double D Challenges Think Spring

Time for a new challenge at the
Double D Challenge blog.
The challenge is being hosted by Team Diane and the theme is
'Think Spring' 
and using the gorgeous inspiration board below.

I love this board  but had a hard time deciding on which way
I wanted to go with it.
In the end, I knew I had just recently purchased a new die
and that is would make the perfect Spring wreath!

I have LOTS of white space on this card and it is a big one
5 1/2" x 5 1/2", but I like it as it is so clean!

I went with the wreath from the mood board and the tulips next to it.
I first thought of usng the daffodils, but my flowers didn't turn out so I trashed them....

For the wreath, I used the new die (to me) from 
Precious Marieke Fleur-De-Lis Frames.
This is a nice 'big' frame.

I added a few tulips (Memory Box) that I colored with my copics,
and a last snippet of ribbon from my stash (and RRR).
I stamped the sentiment, then 'perched' my tiny little bird on it...
loving the little pop of pink!

I finished with a few little pearls...and done!
