Fragrance of Spring

Hello "Shabby" Friends, it's time for a new challenge at 
This week our theme is "Welcome Spring" using the inspiration photo below.

I used SU Pink Pirouette card stock for my card base.
A floral designer paper from scrap the bin went on next,
which I trimmed out with an SU scallop eyelet punch I have had forever!

In my stash I found some small ATC size chalkboard card stocks.
I think I bought this about 3 years ago at Hobbylobby.
It certainly feels good to get it out and actually use!

I stamped a sentiment on using Memories Unicorn white ink.

The focal image is a beautiful digital by our sponsor using Tea Flower Tag.

I printed the image twice, then fussy cut out one bird for the image
and a second bird to "perch" on the flowers.

Now it's your turn!
Head on over to "The Shabby Tea Room"
and see what other beautiful creations the "shabby girls"
have to inspire you.

Join our challenge with us, we have a lovely prize from our sponsor!

Entering the following challenges:
Pixies Snippets Playground ... ATG with snippets
Come and Get It .... Things That Start with "B" (bow,blue, birds)
Pile It On ....April Showers Bring May Flowers

Simply stunning! Love all the vintage shabby chic elements going on here. The duel usage of that lAce die was a supersmart design move.
