Happy Birthday to You

It's a beautiful day in CA's Central Valley, 
Spring is in full bloom here, with warm (not hot!) days.
And the Card Concept has a new challenge for you,
with this photo:

Vintage Tiles, musical backgrounds, lace, birds, 
well, you get the idea.
What inspires you?

Take a look at a birthday card I did, using the photo for inspiration.

The lacy frame is a stencil from PTI's Lovely Lace,
inked with Ranger's Distress Oxide: Iced Spruce & Vintage Photo.
I LOVE the way those inks blend, and the colors they create,
when overlapped.
The birds, flowers, musical birthday score 
 and leafy branch are from Songbirds, one of my PTI favorites.

Enjoy your Spring day, (hopefully it's as beautiful as mine)
and visit the Card Concept Challenge Blog for more inspiration!
