CCMC110.....Happy Birthday Bird




Good Saturday Morning Peeps! Hope your week went well, and you are enjoying the weekend relaxing!

Today's card share is made with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie & Mary Blog.

The base of my card is chocolate chip and I followed that with some very vanilla. The DS paper is from the "Play Date" paper pack. I used some more of the wood sheet, that I had out from yesterday's card and made my circle and scallop circle. I used the bird punch and cut out a chocolate chip and newsprint bird. I layered the newsprint onto the chocolate chip, just to give it more weight. I added some old olive leaves for my bird to sit on. The sentiment comes from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set. I used some real red grosgrain ribbon and some red sticky rhinestones for the bird and the three accents above.

Well, that is it from me today, I will be back in the AM with my Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge sample. Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!!!

Wonderful card Vicki! I always have a hard time using the large printed designer paper and I love how you've used it here! The bird punched out of the newsprint paper looks excellent! Great combo!
