A Little Birdie Said...


On 6/7/10 This card won Top 3 at KL Stampin N Scrappin. Thank you.

Good Afternoon, everyone! I hope you all are having a fantabulous day. As usual, it is very hot and sunny here today. Good day to enter some challenges. This card is actually only being entered in 10 challenges, as that is the limit for Paper Sundaes, and this card was inspired by their kraft and blue challenge. My layout is the sketch from KL Stampin' N Scrappin'. I wanted to go for a vintagey look (ABC Challenge), so I used these lovely papers from K&Company as well as kraft. The flowers are prima with brads in the center. The metal flower brads and metal swirl are from my stash. I used the Cuttlebug script embossing folder on the one layer. Did lots of layering by stamping my darling Hampton Art bird card stamp 4 times and cutting it out in pieces, so that in the end the bird stands alone on the edge of the bird cage with an extra birdie for the corner. The border punch is EK Success.
