Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #195

Sweet n Sassy Stamps is the sponsor of this week's Tuesday Throwdown Challenge.  
Korin, the owner, and her gals were set up right across from us at the Stamping Show in Oaks, PA last week.  They have great clear stamps, die cuts, templates and digi stamps like the Bluebird Digital Stamp I've used on my DT card below.  Sweet n Sassy also has a fun blog and weekly challenge.  This week they are looking for something with spots.  That would be easy to combine with our Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #195 - Sweet n Sassy with Spring Blossoms.
The DP I've used is the second sheet of Graphic 45 paper I purchased at the show.  I was showing great self restraint by purchasing only 2 sheets, which is why I cut out a rectangle of the DP that's behind the image so I can use it on another card.  I fussy cut around the bird's head and put just a bit of foam tape beneath it.  The rest of the image is glued flat on the card.  The ribbon and bling flourish are both from CTMH, the sentiment is SNS and I colored the image with a combination of markers and colored pencils.

Please stop by the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge to see the other wonderful creations made by the rest of Team B and also Sweet n Sassy Designs to see the wonderful array of products available.  They have some great sales, so make sure you get on their email list! 

And don't forget to join in the fun at both challenges!!

Unfortunately, I can't play in the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge since I'm on the DT.  And I didn't find out until yesterday that the Sweet n Sassy Challenge theme was dots and spots, so I'll need to make another card for that one.  Instead I'll enter this in a few other challenges:
Scribble and Scrap Challenge #18 - Always Anything Goes
Ladybug Crafts May Challenge - Use your favorite embellishments  (Gems and ribbons)
Polkadoodle Challenge Week 18 - Something Old (ribbon) Something New (flourish and DP)
As You Like It Challenge - Favorite Fur or Feathers and Why (Feathers.  I love feeding and watching birds.)
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Mother's Day  (I made this for my mother for Mother's Day.  I've seen her twice and forgotten to give it to her both times! Duh!)
