Song Bird Birthday

Good Afternoon :)

I'm on an afternoon schedule at work until next Monday so I'll be posting before I go. Such a change since normally I post at 3am, he he. I so love my night shift schedule, ah well I'll be back there soon enough!

Today's card was done using Wee Memories Sketch. I love all the different challenges Jenny comes up with, such a creative lady. This is the sketch

and here is my card
I used Prima Papers from the Breathe Collection. Once I picked out my papers I stamped the bird (Unity, Could I be any Cuter) 3 times, on pink, on yellow, and on white which I then colored in with broken china.
I cut all my pieces down to size and punched the scallop border (EK Success) on two of them. I inked all the edges with brushed corduroy before adhering them to the kraft card base.

Once everything except the bird was blued down I drew in some white dashed lines and little polka dots with my enamel accents (Inkessentials, white)

For the little song bird I stamped it two more times once to a piece of white and once to my actual card. I know it sounds scary putting it all together and then stamping on it but I needed the little details (legs, music notes etc.) that I couldn't cut out. The bird I stamped on the white is where I did my paper piecing, then I cut it out as a whole and adhered it with foam over the bird on the card base. I added stardust stickles the the wings.

For the top embellishments I wrapped some string around around and then threaded a brown button (Basic Grey) with the same bright blue. The tag was stamped on white, colored with antique linen, and edged in brushed corduroy. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I'll be back with another quick one, thanks for coming over!!
