Playing in Paradise #61

Guess what? My first week hosting over at Playing in Paradise, and we're playing with this inspiration photo:

PPC#61
Since Easter is this weekend, I decided to resist the urge to go Easter-y with my card, and instead went with the botanical idea I had. I just got the perfect images for this from the Scrapbooker's Paradise store, this Field Notes sheet from SEI. Perfect, right? So I chose a bird to work with, and voila:

Supplies: SEI Field Notes paper;
Fancy Pants paper;
studio G sentiment; Colorbox Chalk ink;
the girls paperie cameo; velvet K&Co leaves

Gorgeous cameo (ON SALE!) and shimmery velvet leaves
Love that cameo - and I scored the package for $1.80. Yep. My first stop is always the Sale section to see what goodies are in there - you will not believe the discounts. 
All the details & (if I did it right!) the linky tool for this challenge can be found over at Scrapbooker's Paradise Ponderings, and you have until next Thursday, April 12 at noon to play along for a great prize. Go check it out :)
xoxo,
Jessi
