spread your wings..

Hey there!  Popping in with a card for a few challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches, Color Throwdown and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (animal antics).   I have several My Monthly Hero kits I have hardly touched since receiving them and I decided that I needed to remedy that situation so I pulled out the stamps and dies from the  February 2018 kit along with an add-on stamp set that I purchased at the same time to create my card.  Originally I was going to use the feather stamps and dies, but decided instead to use the fun birds nest die along with one of the silhouette bird images from the set.  I die cut the bird's nest from kraft cardstock and then popped up the little leaves in the nest.  I stamped the bird using a medium green ink and then the little branch using a darker green ink.  Both were die cut with their respective dies and then all the pieces adhered together.   The bird/nest piece was placed on a die cut piece of white cardstock so I could determine where to place the sentiment and then removed so the sentiment could be stamped in kraft colored ink.  The sentiment is from the add-on stamp set.  The whole piece was then popped up on the panel with foam tape per the layout from Freshly Made Sketches.   A super clean and simple design.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft, MFT white; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Dies:  Hero Arts and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up!
