Catered Crop Follow the Recipe #10!

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a card that highlights one of my very favorite things about spring - purple martins coming home to their house in my backyard! They come back year after year, and I just love them!

I love this Tall Birdhouse stamp from Hero Arts, too! And the buttons - I had been wanting the new Maya Road alterable wood buttons and finally scored some at Archiver's, yay! I colored the wood with my Copics, love how it looks.

I've been a rotten cardmaker & blogger lately, too much going on at home! I made this card for this week's Follow the Recipe challenge but failed to blog it before Linda's Top Chef Quickfire post yesterday! Oops!! Make sure and check out the post - my teammates created some GORGEOUS cards!!
And it's not too late at all for YOU to play along! All you have to do is check out the inspiration card and follow one or more elements from her recipe! Easy peasy! This week Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor, and they are offering up seven free digital images!

As for me, here's how I was inspired:
  • Pattern Paper – stripes, miniprints
  • Colors – pastels
  • Color Mediums – Copic markers
  • Embellishments – twine, buttons
  • Theme – Spring
I hope to see you playing along with us this week!
