Happy Bird



Happy Friday everyone! I have a card to show you today that I did for a couple of challenges.
I printed and cut this card using my Imagine and CCR. The patterns and colors are from the Imagine Blossom cart. This is my new FAVORITE way to create cards! One sheet of white cardstock, one time cutting, and that's it!
The scallop circle and mats were cut using Cricut Craft Room Basics and I stamped the white inner piece with a stamp from Heart Elements Nestability stamp set. The bird and flowered branch was cut from Straight From The Nest and I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Cornies face stamp. For the branch I cut 2 and trimmed down the one side to fit around the mat. I also added a rectangle piece to the bottom one to extend it out the width of the card. I colored the centers of the flowers with a white pen and used hole punches for the berries. The butterfly was cut from Indie Art and I embossed the background with Stylized Flowers Cuttlebug folder. To finish I stamped the sentiment which is from Whimsical Designs Whimsical Fun Vol. 1.
I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:
1. My Craft Spot- "For The Birds"
2. Die Cuttin Diva's- Sketch
3. Paper Playtime- Delicious Die Cut Creations With Flowers

Your card is perfect for Spring. It reminds me of the morning walks with my dog since I hear the birds chirping so sweetly. Very peaceful! Thanks for joining us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week.
