Gina K. mid-month illustrator blog hop!

Gina K. and the design team have a special dream birds hop mid-month hop  to share creations made using all our February stamp sets released!  Here I have a fun Dream Birds card to share with you that is one of my favorites I made!  The whimsical spring-like set was illustrated by Asela Hopkins. I used one of my all-time favorite techniques, paper-piecing which is one reason I love line art images!  I used Basic Grey Sugar Rush paper which is a great compliment to the 2 colors I chose for our challenge of using any of the Spring Collection colors-Lemon Drop & Crème de Menthe and Soft Sand is my neutral.

The ribbon I used is from the Spring Collection as well, the green organdy ribbon is so delicate, I thought it was a fun addition to the open space I had in between the Spring scene I made without taking any attention away from the images.
