Inkspirational Challenge #11 - Spring Is In The Air

I'm popping in to share a card I made for this week's Inkspirational Challenge.  Our gals at Inspired By Stamping are joining forces with the crafters at Inkspirational for the month of March and IBS is the sponsor.  You could win great prizes each week.  :-)

The inspiration challenge photo this week features colors I adapted to my card:  greens and purples.



I created a post card using Vintage Post Cards, then added a subtle spring scene with a tree, clouds and a sentiment from Springtime Beauty II, and the birds from Sweet Aviary.


The rose seam binding and crochet lace are from IBS, too.  (links at the end of the post)


If you'd like a chance to win a prize from IBS, link up your creation HERE at Inkspirational.  Have fun!

Thanks for coming by, and have a blessed day. :-)

Colleen this is the sweetest postcard card! I love how soft and detailed it is - what a special feel it portrays - kind of vintage, kind of romantic, but totally announcing Spring. I am so glad Spring has sprung around here - I am so ready for it. Many hugz to you my friend - hope everything is going well. We need to catch up.
