Calendar Challenge Week 5

The theme of the Craft Barn challenge this week is "Pink and Birds".
Had I known this last week... I would not have used a bird stamp! So this week I had real trouble with inspiration, since birds aren't really my thing and I do not own cute birds stamps that would go with a pink color scheme!

For the main image I combined 2 tree stamps  and a bird then splattered some pink and turquoise watercolour over.I was aiming for a "cherry trees in blossom" impression.
For the bottom border, I have used part of the Crafty Individuals-266 stamp to create "stamps" (cut with pinking scissors) and over-stamped with several postmarks.

Thanks for coming by,
