Think Spring!

I am so ready for warm weather!  This week on Latenightstampers we are making cards or projects for Spring and Easter.  I love Spring cards.  It is always so fun to move on the the pretty pastels and more colors.  Get tired of the winter colors pretty fast, lol.  My first sample for this challenge is also using the MDS for the sentiment.  That is probably one of my favorite things about MDS it allows me to make my own sentiments and still be using current SU stuff!  NICE!  Anyhow--on to my Spring card--it is actually a birthday card...

This is such an easy little guy to make too.  I used one scallop circle punch for the wings.  A 1 3/4 inch circle for the body and a boho blossom punch flower for the feathers on top.  The legs are just hand drawn.  To make the eyes, I used a new pencil and used the eraser end like a stamp.  Then added the white dots with my gel pen.  The beak is just a triangle of peach parfait.  Too cute.

Speaking of Spring and Easter designs don't forget about my Easter tutorials.  Click on the pictures for more details.  Both are only $2 each.

Hope you are having a great day!
