Today is our fifty-sixth challenge on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog.
This week the challenge is SPRING!!

This oval card was die cut with Cheery Lynn's XL Oval Stackers Nesting    The stamp for spring is Bird on Flowering Branch stamped with Rich Cocoa Momento Ink Pad and colored with Copics. The image was detailed cut using 4-Split Perforating Tool  and a Piercing Perforating Pad. The base for the Bird on A Branch was die cut from Cheery Lynn's largest of the Nesting Eggs. I embossed the egg with Daisies Embossing Folder.  The butterfly is from Mini Exotic Butterflies.  Greeting, Welcome Spring was stamped with Rich Cocoa Momento Ink.  Using Little Stackers Circles and Little Stackers Scalloped Circles  the base for the greeting was die cut.  The pearls were made with a Ice White Viva Decor Pearl Pen.    The DP is from First Edition's 6x6 pad, Spring DropAll Purpose Spray Adhesive  was used on the bird and butterfly.  This Oval card will fit into a 5"x7" envelope.
