MIF Design Challenge #4 - Spring Colors!

Here's the latest design challenge from My Inky Friends, and the inspiration came from page 70 of the Stampin' Up! 2017 Annual Catalog. Now that Spring is here (well, for some people anyway, LOL), and Easter is right around the corner, this color challenge is perfect with its Spring-y colors!

I was inspired to use the cute floral birdhouse image in Flying Home because the bluebirds are back here in East Tennessee, yay! I thought this was so appropriate; not only for the bird, but the flowers as well.

Heart's Delight Cards, Flying Home, Stampin' Up!, Happy Spring, MIFD4

It's a fun-fold card, and the image panel covers up the greeting panel inside. Both panels are matted on Blushing Bride cardstock, and I left the greeting off the inside, but added the adorable butterfly and bee. I'll jot a personal note before sending it.
