Best Birds Thoughts for You Card

If you asked me what my favorite stamp set is from the current Stampin' Up! catalog, I would tell you it's Best Birds. I truly adore this set mostly because I adore birds but also because there are so many uses for this set. It comes with some great sentiments and can be used for many different occasions. Have I convinced you of how much I love the Best Birds stamp set yet?

To create this card I combined three challenges and they include:
All supplies on this Best Birds Thoughts for You Card are by Stampin' Up! with the exception of Copic markers used to color the bird and branch. Some supplies are new and some are retired and here is the list:
  • Paper: Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Pacific Point and Basic Black cardstock, along with the retired Pretty Petals designer series paper.
  • Stamps: Best Birds
  • Inks & Coloring: Memento black and Classic Stampin' pad in Mint Macaroon. Retired Calypso Coral Blendabilities markers and Copic markers: W1, W3, W5, E31, E50, E57, G99, Y23, YG61 and YR21.
  • Other Stuff: Big Shot, Birds & Blooms Thinlit dies, decorative edgelit die and Stampin' dimensionals.  
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
