Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge Sponsored by JustRite

I thought I'd never get my card for this challenge at Joan's Gardens finished, as "life" kept getting in my way, but I'm finally posting and there are still a whole 4 1/2 hours or so remaining --YIKES -- talk about almost down to the wire! I wanted to use my JustRite Backyard Birds set as I've not used it previously and it is such a fun year-round set.

For my spring card, I chose this sweet little bird tending its eggs, combined with some spring flowers paper from K & Company's Margo line and JustRite's "Rebirth of Spring" sentiment from Nature Nested Sentiments and Verse, another favorite set! My sentiment was stamped on two lines on a Spellbinders' tag (retired Tags Five die) and a flower sprig from the Backyard Birds border was added before threading through a Martha Stewart ribbon.  Copic markers were used to color my stamped images, which were stamped using Memento's Pear Tart and Danube Blue inks. All pieces were distressed with Tim Holtz Antique Linen or Tea Dye Distress Inks.

Thanks for your visit today!
