"Celebrate Spring" Whimsical Wednesday Challenge

Hello everyone. It is with a super sad heart to say that this will be the last Whimsical Wednesday challenge. Stephanie had decided to take some well deserved time off and will no longer be hosting challenges. If you're like me, this is one of the first challenge's that I found when I first started blogging and played in too. I know that it will be missed greatly by a lot of you. Stephanie has been the most wonderful person to DT for and I will miss this very much. I also just want to say THANK YOU STEPHANIE for being such a wonderful friend and the awesome stamps you provided us with.You went above and beyond what most do and I want to let you know that I greatly appreciated it. XOXOXO
So now on to the last challenge....
It's time for a new Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This time the challenge is "Celebrate Spring". Create any card or project to celebrate spring. This can be a spring image, colors, you decide how you celebrate spring.
I made this pretty card with the colors of spring in mind and bird's chirping. That's one of my favorite things about spring, waking up to the birds chirping.
My card is fairly simple, just a lot of layers. I cut all the layers and rounded some of the corners with a corner punch and inked all the edges. I made the banner in the center by cutting it by hand and the scallop center mat was cut from Cricut Craft Room Basics. I used my sewing machine and sewed around the blue mat and printed and cut the bird from the Imagine Lori's Garden cart. To finish I added a ribbon that I made using a brad center and stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1 stamp set.

I hope you all will play along this week and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the amazing DT has created! Have a great day and I can't wait to see what you will create!
