A Bird in Hand

I want to share with you a rather simple card today.  I coloured this image up months back now and it sat on my desk just waiting to be turned into a card. There are so many spring challenges on right now that this image is just perfect. I have paired it up with a few of the gorgeous new papers from the Memory Box which are so fresh and cheerful. The layout of my card is from one of the sketch challenges that was being run a few weeks back. I loved the sketch but never got around to using it in time for the challenge.

To complete my card I have added a simple sentiment using my distress inks and a stamp from Hero Arts. I punched a few butterflies and embellished with a trail of bling.

 I hope that I have inspired you to create something today and I want to thank you all for all of the lovely comments that you have been leaving for me. It is such a joy to read them all.

Happy Crafting!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges;
