I decided to go "birdy" for my second spring card. 
I made a distress ink background
I then took a piece of inky mop up card and used my Pebble waves stencil
and added some Vintage photo distress ink
I used this as a background to cut out the brilliant For the birds CUTplorations dies
Shery's die are amazing and cut like butter through all card stock
I used the soar stamp as my sentiment and also stamped some birds in the background using the brilliant Trendy birds 2 stamp set

Here is my finished card
with a close up of the brilliant bold sentiment.
I would like to enter it into the following challenges;

  4. I have inked papers like yours that are with my scraps. Maybe I should try something like you? I'm so glad you posted a pic of the inked paper alone. Otherwise, I wouldn't have thought of it!

  18. Always love seeing birdies on creations Jane and these are vert dramatic, thanks so much for joining in with our 'Sentiment in Focus' theme at Allsorts challenge. Thanks for joining in this months 'Spring' theme at Penny Black and More as well, although reading through your post the focal element which is the birds is a die cut and not stamped which is necessary for our challenge.
