The House That Stamps Built

 This week is a darling spring  photo inspiration from Wendy at

I was inspired by both the photo and colors.  I started with a stenciled
background using a Dylusions Stencil-Fronds of Foliage in
shades of gray.  I stamped Repeat Impressions Bird Song
and colored it with Copics.  A die cut  with Stamp In Ups
Layering Oval dies with patterned paper  and punched 
corners to match.

Join our weekly challenge, you might just 
be the lucky winner of the monthly drawing for the

Well great minds think alike!!! We used the same image and similar layouts. I like your gray stenciled background - goes very well with this image. This was a fun inspiration to work with. Great job.

Hello, Donna! Your card is gorgeous! I love the stencilled background and I love the bird! This is a lovely colour combo too, not one that I would think to use but it works beautifully! Thanks for the inspiration! Sorry I haven't visited for a while. I took a couple weeks away from my blog as I had lost my mojo but I think (hope) I'm getting it back. Hope you and your loved ones are all safe and well. Sending hugs from across the miles.

This is so lovely, Donna. I find the combination of soft grey, white and yellow inherently peaceful and really enjoy crafting with it, too.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I truly appreciate it and hope that you have a safe, beautiful tail end of April.
