Spring is in the Air

It's time for Blogger's Challenge again. This week the challenge is for the birds. I finally got a chance to use a fairly new La Blanche stamp which has been waiting to be used.
For the layout of the card I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch. The background are strips of design paper from my stash. I chose patterns to give a vintage spring feel. After all, birds and spring go together.  The image is painted with Creative Inspirations paints. I love the shimmer they give to the card. The sentiment is from Club Scrap.
I am entering this card into a few other challenges. The Ink on my Fingers Sunday Challenge is birds. Both Three Muses and Fashionable Stamping have spring as their challenge.
Best of all, this card will be in the mail tonight to wish my brother-in-law a happy birthday.
