Vintage Easter

did you notice the charm hanging on the twine?
 What I like about this stamp is that it definitely looks like an Easter image (at least to me) without being a bunny, lamb, chickie, duck or an egg (not that I have anything against the bunnies, lambs, etc.). 
There are a couple challenges for shabby and vintage cards.  They are so much fun for me.  I love scrunging (yeah, I made that word up) up edges.  That's making them grungy with sponging or pouncing ink on them, and tearing them up. 
The layout is this week's Mojo Monday challenge. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Crafty Secrets "Bird Lovers"
ink - Memento "Rich Cocoa"; Ranger "Tea Dye" and "Scattered Straw"
paper - My Favorite Things beige Perfect Panel; MFT "Sno Cone" cs; K & Co "Life's Journey" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Kaiser Craft lace; sheer ribbon; Plaid "Petals a Plenty" bird charm; burlap twine; burlap twine; prima flower; nesties scalloped square; Jolee crystals; sewing machine

don't forget the inside

Here's the challenges:
Mojo Monday MOJO186 - sketch
Top Tip #29 - Spring has Spring
Shabby Tea Room #57 - Inspiration photo (little pink birdie in a doily nest) and doily and/or lace
Whoopsie Daisy - vintage
