A Little Birdie...

Short post today with a card for ODBDSLC55 to use a bird on your card.  I don't have any of the ODBD set that have birds in them, but I do have this lovely designer paper from Stampin Up! called Botanical Gazette that has this sweet little bird image on it. 



I trimmed the paper so that the bird was sort of a focal point and distressed the sides.   I stamped the verse from the ODBD Daffodil Tag set on white cardstock and diecut it using the ODBD Elegant Ovals dies.  A Spellbinders rectange die was used to diecut some more designer paper and that was layered with verse and a second elegant oval using foam dimensionals.   A blue Zva Creative crystal flourish and a bow tied with some May Arts silk ribbon finished the card.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Botanical Gazette DP; Ink:  Memento Summer Sky; Stamps:  ODBD Daffodil Tag; Zva Creative flourish; Spellbinders Rectangle dies; ODBD Elegant Ovals dies

Oh, my DEAR! Oh, my dear, oh MY dear! THIS is exquisite! EVERY bit and bauble's worth of material in this stunning piece of crafty finery is STUNNING! The look on the bird, just brings him to life, peeking out from behind THAT bow, as if it were REAL! I'm in LOVE. This is SUPER, Rosebud. I'm on one knee - bowing. {!}
