A Little Birdie Told Me...

Managed to get a chance to play!! This week was not quite as crazy as last week (work has slowed down a little and things are a little more settled at home). Love the WMS that Jen Cutherbertson came up with for this week... round!! Working on a smaller scale. Now, when I saw the sketch and viewed the samples I wanted to use WMS Sewing Box Hugs (have had this and on my list of stamps to ink....New Years Resolution)... Black bold link is just sending you to the store 'cause I know you'll want it all.... been there, just sayin'!! I was thinking I would use the heart but, when it came time to play... I went for that sweet bird and soft colors.

My card...

Stamped the bird image on some Pink Paislee dp and cut out the inner bird. Stamped the polka dot bg from WMS Gingham & Co. onto going gray cardstock after stamping off (second generation inking) and then, stamped the bird again to get the softer/variated gray wing) and popped on top. Stamped the sentiment from WMS Sewing Box Hugs onto twill with SU basic gray and added SU crumbcake seam binding and ribbon from my stash (can't remember who I purchased this from but, love it.... little ragged edges and a blue/gray color)--loved Kelly's sample that had the sentiment stamped in the lower corner... this is my version!!

Here's the sketch...

Love the sentiment on the ribbon and the little branch for the bird. Such a fun sketch. Have it in my "to use" pile but knowing my weakness for hearts, think it will have a heart on it :) Glad to hear things are settling down for you.
