This card is for today's SCS Feature Stamper Challenge (FS166)! Congratulations, Pat! Here is the card I chose to case!  This card is also for yesterday's SCS Inspiration Challenge(IC227)!  Be inspired by the state you live! I live in North Carolina. Our state bird is the Cardinal. I used some Webster Pages dp for my background. The blue one is a ocean scene with fish and a shipwreck. The red one sea shells.  There is much history off of North Carolina's Coast. One of the First Original Colonies. We were also first in Flight! The Wright Brother's flew the first plane at Kitty Hawk, NC! My clustering of flowers represent all of the flower and blooming festivals we have in our state from May thru October!

I am using ODBD Sing for Joy and Thinking of You stamp sets. This card is also for ODBD Shining the LIght Challenge(ODBDSLC8) and ODBD Stamping In Time SNTODBD7!

For Pat's card, I kept an animal/bird as focal point.  I sort of kept the layout.  I moved the flowers from right side to the left.  I changed colors.
