Sweet Neglected Little Birdie

Sweet Neglected Little Birdie
T.G.I.F. and I got to do a little stamping today! I combined Kristina’s color inspiration challenge (#26) with Beate’s sketch challenge (#62), because they both worked well with the stamp set I wanted to use for this card, A Little Birdie Told Me. Since I was using a neglected stamp set, I thought I might as well use a background stamp I have hardly used at all, called Happiness. I only inked up the bottom part of the large stamp with Wild Wasabi ink and stamped the flowers on Whisper White card stock.

I paper pieced the birdie with retired Rose Red Prints Designer Series Paper on top of a piece of So Saffron Prints Designer Series Paper, also retired. The sayings were stamped with Jet Black StazOn ink and punched out with circle punches.

Thanks for stopping by!
