Pretty Birdies Card


Most afternoons you will find my backyard busy with birds. I have seven bird feeders that I try to keep stocked with seed. It's terrific entertainment for my household felines who lay at the back windows and watch them for hours. We have two resident cottontail rabbits who love eating from the ground feeders and the neighborhood squirrels will usually pay us a few visits. This Pretty Birdies Card was inspired by my backyard feathered friends. I used this weeks sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I rotated the sketch to accommodate the Doodle Pantry Spring Song Birdies image. The scalloped oval die is my oldest and I also used the retired Little Leaves Sizzlits. The patterned paper is some scrap from my stash that I believe is by The Paper Studio. To cut the wavy edge of the card I used an older Creative Memories wavy trimmer. The flowers were stamped with Calypso Coral ink using the Petite Petals stamp set and coordinating punch all by Stampin' Up!. In the center of the flower I added Daffodil Delight Candy Dots. That about sums it up. Thanks for stopping by!
