STAMPlorations March Theme & Sketch Challenge!

Hello and welcome crafty friends!
It's a new month, and that means a new 
This month's Theme is STAMPS & SPRING. and below is 
the sketch. You can do either theme, or sketch, or combine both!

Here's what I came up with. I used both Theme & Sketch:

and the inside:

I went a little designer paper crazy with this card, but I like how it turned out. It kinda has a collage vibe to it. I first stamped the flowers on the card base using Bloom Factory in various colors. Then added the striped paper. Next I die cut two of the mid-sized luggage tags from the CUTplorations Luggage Tags dies, After die cutting a circle, I die cut it from the Luggage Tag die to get the curve of it, and adhered to the top one. I edged both in a black marker before adhering together and adding a flower brad. I stamped the word birthday from the Big Greetings stamp set, then adhered the tags to my base. I stamped one of the birds from the Trendy Birds 2 set and fussy cut. I then die cut the Happy CUTplorations die from black card stock, adhering both, so that some of the bird sat atop the word, and also under it. A couple stamps from the Smile set finishes the inside.

I hope you get some time to join in for the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch Challenge!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
