Welcome back to The Shabby Tea Room!
I have the pleasure of Guest Designer for the month of May...oh how I don't want this month to end!!

You will really love this weeks challenge...'Monochromatic' color and a neutral.
How ironic that the photo inspiration mimics a 'surprise' I found in a bush outside my diningroom
baby Cardinals...can't wait for them to hatch! here is my card...
All stamps are Hero Arts. Ivory cardstock is Recollections. White embossing powder from Stampendous. Various distress and shadow inks in neutrals. Resin flower from Melissa Frances. Pin is Maya Road. Feathers, gold twigs, gems, pearls and doily from Micheals.  Border punch is Fiskars. Ribbon is recycled.

Thanks for stopping by!
