Spring Is Coming

I have exciting news!!  I have been asked to join the Design Team from Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog!!  I am so excited and so honored to be asked to be part of the team.  Today is my first challenge as a team member and the challenge is "Buttons and Bows".  We have a fabulous line up of sponsors and prizes:
A Day For Daisies: $12 gift certificate
Bugaboo Digital Stamps: 7 images of choice
Limited Runs Stamps: 3 images of choice

I was able to choose an image from Limited Runs to work with and I chose this beautiful "Birdhouse #1":
 I paired it with some gorgeous MME paper and some sparkly frantage around the image.  You can see it a bit better in the following photo.
In keeping with my personal challenge to use up my "bits and pieces" stash, I used the little bit of picket fence.  It really adds to the garden feel of the image.  Now, it's time to hop on over to LTSCB and see the projects from the rest of the DT.  Then it's time to get inky and play along.

Challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Challenges #133--tic tac toe (I used the lace, pearls, sparkle column and the die/punch, ribbon and wet embossing column)
Loves Rubberstamps Challenge #140--use ribbon and/or lace (I used both)
Shopping Our Stash #190--out of the jar (frantage embossing powder)
Creative Inspirations #302--luscious lace
The Crafter's Cafe #105--lots of layers
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2--sketch

The Paper Shelter #192--make it digital
Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Wonderful Wednesday--anything goes
Art Impressions #154--Tie it up
Winter Wonderland--tie a bow
Sister Act Card Challenge #95--anything goes
Brown Sugar Challenge #135--anything goes
Meljen's Designs #249--seeing spots

Supplies:
Stamps: Limited Runs "Birdhouse #1"
Dies: Sweet n' Sassy Stamps fence die
Papers: MME "Kate & Co"; PTI Aqua Mist card stock
