Sing and Make Music

Spring time is in full swing as I return from visiting family and picking up my daughter from college for her summer break! I wasn't sure if I would even do any paper crafting this week. I couldn't stand it and had to create something! I Hopped over to the Our Daily Bread Designs blog and onto Splitcoaststampers to combine two challenges into one.
 The colors were inspired by the Color Challenge 476. I did add a light pink 5x7 inch card base to make this card pop and also to brighten the muted spring tones. I left the inside white and added the left over strip of 6x6 paper that I used on the front.
 The challenge at ODBD was to use spring colors and ODBD stamps. You can read more about the ODBDSLC 200 here. I kept things simple and easy to mail via parcel post. I know that simple isn't exactly the norm for me and it turned out elegant just the same by using trim, custom colored mulberry flowers and a few dimensional foam dots.  The one thing that is a bit different is the use of the ODBD Fancy Foliage die to cut a negative into the floral paper as well as using positive cuts along the sides. I then took a marker to place vein lines.
