Lili of the Valley Thursday SPRING challenge

Hello everyone, I am so glad this very, very busy week is coming to a close. It seems like there is  no time for anything except work, chores and errands! I really could use a good vacation, better yet- a stamp-cation. Stay home lounging around in PJ's, doing a lot of stamping, coloring, playing games...
OK, I'll stop dreaming now. Here's my Spring themed card for the LOTV challenge this week. I chose this adorable little birdie on a watering can image. Too tweet! Lol!

I colored the chubby birdie with my colored pencils because I knew I wanted lush green grass, and I do grass best with my colored pencils. Can't seem to get the same look with anything else.
I even added a bit of hand stitching with some pretty Spring Green embroidery floss around the lacy square.

Even the patterned paper is appropriately named 'Sparkling Spring'- a new collection from Prima. And last but not least, I die cut some felt flowers with PTI dies.

Now if only the weather around here started looking something like this card...

That's all for today, make sure you check out the Lili of the Valley challenge blog for some DT inspiration, create your own card to enter for a chance to win some stamps!!
