Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

I have a card to share for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use these beautiful photos as inspiration:


Aren't they lovely?
I was especially inspired by the bottom left one, with the bird.
Here's my card:


I started by blending Altenew Mountain Mist & Volcano Lake inks 
onto my Stamper's Select White panel.
I stamped my birds and branch stamps from Spring Woods and flowers from Brushed Blooms
onto their coordinating diecut.
I also added some leaves from Altenew's Vintage Flowers.


I stamped my sentiment (from Songbirds) in Altenew Jet Black ink.

Thanks for looking!
