Spring Birdsong

I got my Spring stamp kit from Whiff of Joy last week, only just had time to cut a couple out and ink them up. Isn't this the most beautiful Spring image?

I used the sketch from Paper Sundaes as the basis for my card, another great to work with sketch, thanks! I've kept my card clean and simple, so I'm entering it for Saturday Spotlight's Keep it Clean theme. The ABC Challenge this week is P is for Paper Piecing; one of my favourite techniques; I've paper pieced Willow's dress from a lovely small-scale Basic Grey Wisteria paper.

All DP is Basic Grey Wisteria, Whiff of Joy image is stamped with Memento London Fog and coloured with Copics, as well as some Stickles on the flowers in Willow's hair. Distress Inks edge the image. The paper punch used is Martha Stewart Hydrangeas, card candy is from Craftwork Cards, white ribbon from stash is coloured with Copic pen.

Love the image, now to try to find the time to use the others in the kit... does anyone have any spare time going spare please? :)
