Mixed Media Card Challenge (March)

Well hello lovelies! I'm so happy it's March and we are coming to the end of a long hot summer and hopefully welcoming a lovely Autumn. Mind you it's an extremely sultry 36 degrees celcius at 5.30 pm in the evening, so Summer is still hanging in there.

The theme this month at the Mixed Media Card challenge is *TREES* and the optional element is *BIRDS*.

I've used Distress markers, Zig CCB Markers, Distress inks and Wink of Stellar.
I used a couple of stencils and 3 stamps.
I nearly gave on this card, because I originally just sponged the background with distress ink, but it looked really flat.
Then I decided to go over it with a stencil and stamped some text  and it really gave the whole thing a lift. The bird is from Penny Black and the sentiment is from STAMPlorations.

The Mixed Media Card Challenge  is open until 25 March and you can see lots of inspiration over on the blog. You can enter the challenge here.
