613 Avenue Create - Guest Designer

Good morning happy (early) Sunday!  Hope your weekend is going well!  We are having the most delightful Spring weather here!  It was warm and sunny yesterday and the forecast is for the same today!  The trees are blooming and the birds are singing!  I just love it!

I am here to share my next card as Guest Designer for the 613 Avenue Create blog.  The theme this week is "Spring fever".  All of Team B and a few members of Team A (including me) are participating today.  The challenge is being sponsored by Rick St. Dennis and Limited Runs Digital Stamps.  I was generously provided with a cute stamp from Limited Runs for my card.

Here is what I came up with:

My card base and mats are SU Lucky Limeade and the fun patterned papers are from the Little Yellow Bicycle Hello Spring 6x6 pad.  The cute Spring image is Birdhouse #3 from Limited Runs Digital Stamps.  I printed it on X-Press It Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I sponged in a cloudy sky and added a couple of pearls to the flower centers.  The sentiment is from the Calling You set from Create With TLC.  You can find it in Paulette's store here.  A few flowers from Michael's $1 bin finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to head over to the 613 Avenue Create Challenge blog and check out the beautiful Spring creations from the DT!  I am sure they would be thrilled if you played along!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday #200 (sketch)
The Corrosive Challenge # 171 (Spring fling)
Allsorts Challenge #201 (Spring has sprung)

Here is SSW-200:
