Embellish Color Challenge With Stitching

Hey everybody! Well I was finally able to craft a couple of days ago and this is one of the cards I made. I started making it, with Spring colors in mind and before I knew it it started fitting in the Embellish Challenge! I just realized that the inspiration pics have little colored eggs too! :)
I am not the greatest at hand stitching! I just eye-balled it! :)
{Hello Spring card} Supplies: Cardstock- (PTI) aqua mist, sweet blush, (Paper reflections) kraft, (Georgia Pacific) white ; Stamps- (WplusDesign) Love birds, (American Crafts) Dear Lizzy "Spring" sentiment, (Studio G) Spring stamps "Hello" sentiment ; Ink- (Versamark) watermark, (ColorBox) chestnut roan & pink, (Martha Stewart) blue ; Ribbon- (Offray) white satin, brown embroidery floss ; Other- (Recollections) brown pearl
It also fits the EBTKS challenge, to use string. If you haven't played yet, stop by and check it out!
I am so happy it is starting to look like Spring here, but that also brings NASTY pollen! We live in the woods, so you can imagine the pollen! Our cars start looking yellow! And now my poor hubby is sick in bed! He says it's from the tulips I bought the other day and are now our center piece on our table! Every time I buy fresh flowers, someone gets sick in our house! That is why our kids were sick right before vacation last month. I had to throw the flowers away, and they were so pretty! So I just threw these away too! :( He is coughing, running fever, and his sinuses are stopped up. I made him an appointment for tomorrow. Please keep him in your prayers.
Well it's time to get the kids from school and Chace has a batting class.
So ya'll have a Blessed day!
