TSG107 - Spring Inspiration

Hello everyone! I am the Trendsetter of the Week this week for There She Goes and am hosting today's TSG Challenge! For this challenge, create something inspired by the above photo! Stop over at the TSG blog for all the challenge details and information on how YOU can win by playing!

For my card, I pulled out my Happy Day stamp set to use the fabulous little tree in my design, adding bunches of pink gemstone flowers for the beautiful azalea blooms you see in the picture. And of course, I had to add a little bluebird at the top, just like the photograph! I actually pulled out a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock to use for my card base and in my tired state this weekend, I thought it was the A2 size that I usually use. After awhile, I knew something wasn't right, but decided to stick with this more narrow card size and see how it turned out. Turns out, I LIKE it! It's a very fun, different angle from my usual cards! Give it a try sometime... the finished size is 3 1/2" x 5 1/2". My card layout is loosely based on Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #117.
Here's a close-up of all my little bitty flowers on the tree, and the dimension that shows from popping up some of the leaves on dimensional adhesive!
I hope you'll join in the challenge this week! Remember, all the deets are on the TSG blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
