Aqua Key Lime Blossoms - Freestyle Collage Card

I love a great all-occasion card now and then,
especially when I'm able to either leave it as-is or add an appropriate
sentiment stamp later on.
This card in an aqua/teal/green and lime color scheme does just that for me.

I am loving these layered blossom stamps from Altenew.
A real treat.  I know we're seeing them everywhere but really,
who can have too many florals? 

Here are the challenges:

Sunday Stamps #127: Color challenge
Pile it On #109: Tic Tac Toe
Stripes, Die Cut, Bird

Catch the Bug May Photo Inspiration:
This is a meadowlark.  It's related to a thrush,
and the bird on my fussy-cut label element at the top of the card
is one of these two.  I can't *exactly* tell you which because it's not colorized and
it's probably been stylized too.  Still... you get why the naturalist in me
wants to make the point...
I'll be back with a TRUE meadowlark later ;)
