Spring Fling Crop!

The May, month long, "Spring Fling" crop at My Sketch World is in full swing. All of the challenges have been posted and there is a great selection! I had the opportunity to work on a few of them this past weekend.

Patti's challenge is to be "Inspired by Spring"! I chose this new Vera handbag, "In a Tree" as my inspiration. The design, colors, and birds were a real incentive for me! I actually found some patterned paper that was very similar.
Here is a close up of the pattern along the bottom of the handbag. Isn't it spring-like?
Here is the card that I made using my handbag inspiration! Similar patterns with a pink accent color instead of the turquoise. I made my flower with some lace trim and organza ribbon. The metal accent is from Making Memories. The "ghost" bird is a little difficult to see in the photo, but it is just above the metal accent on the pink/white scalloped oval.
Another challenge posted by Ann is "Just Stamp It!" Nothing but cardstock and stamps. This is one of my favorite Stampin' Up stamps. I used the SU Soft Suede ink and a metal brad in the center.

"Show Us Your Stripes" is Cheryl's challenge for the crop. I love this SEI striped paper with the white pearl swirls throughout. I tried to mimmick the swirls across the top using some Basic Grey rubons in my stash.
