true friend

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Our temps are back to cold again. It was 17 degrees when I woke this morning.
Oh well, it is officially spring so sooner or later the temps are going to rise.

On the indoor front, I have an orchid that is starting to bloom again. This will be the third time for this plant. One of the flowers opened today and when I have a few more I will take some photos.

Well onto my card for today. I made this one for the color challenge on splitcoaststampers. Our hostess, Julia aka artystamper, chose some great spring colors this week.

She wants us to use baja breeze, marina mist and certainly celery. I had an image in mind so I went to work.

This cute bird is from whipper snapper designs. I used prismacolor pencils and gamsol from my coloring. The sentiment is from Stampin-Up's "punch bunch collection.

The layout was provided by the crazy for challenge blog. The hostess is Silke Ledlow and she provided a great sketch to work with.

My patterned paper is also from Stampin-Up, the parisian breeze collection. I used celery ribbon and cardstock on my middle cross panels. The butterflies are punched in marina mist wit ha Martha Stewart punch.

That completed this card. So unitl next time......
