Chirp Up Soon


I'm popping in with a card I made for Virginia's View Challenge! I was searching for some inspiration and found that the challenge has a link up party, with the theme of any type of friendship card. My card is for a friend that is a little down and needs some cheering up!!

I started by die cutting a stitched rectangle from water color card stock. Then I pulled out a Hero Arts stamp set that has been gathering dust, Layering Bird and Branch. I started with the bird using Papertrey Ink's Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mists and Ocean Tides. For the beak, eyes and feet I used Smokey Shadow.

For the flowers I used Hero Arts Bubble Gum and Raspberry Jam inks and for the leaves Field Greens, and Forever Greens. I used PTI's Dark Chocolate for the branch and sentiment.

Last I added white sequins and then adhered the panel to a Kraft card base. The card is flat enough and even with the sequins I think it will go through the mail well enough!

Thanks for stopping by!!
