Color Throwdown #375- Happy Hello!!

Good Morning- Happy Hump Day!! I'm back to the hump day after having several long WEs over the holidays!! Oh well, at least it's a fun one!!! I haven't had a lot of time to stamp lately and hoping the New Year brings me more time in the craft room!!

New colors picked by Joan...

Yep... a girl after my own heart... ready for spring/summer (although I may enjoy a little bit of winter between, it's hard- I'd rather be at the beach!)

 I went with the whole bird theme and some new goodies (some new, some I've had but hadn't been inked) from My Favorite Things. I used the smaller grid stencil for my background sponged onto a panel from Blueprints 13 using SU Basic Gray. After stamping these sweet bird images and flowers from Polynesian Paradise- I colored with copics and trimmed to size. The sentiment uses Label Maker Sentiments and Label Tape die-namics. Added a little twine to finish!!
