Songbird

Good morning! It's almost the weekend. Yay! I decided to play along with the Card Positioning Systems sketch challenge. They are celebrating their anniversary and have lined up a great group of sponsors, including Gina K Designs.

For my card, I used Asela Hopkins' new set, Warm and Fuzzy. I love this little bird.

I sponged the background and used stamps from Tropical Friends and Botanical Dreams, and stamped the image. Then I stamped the image a second time on a small piece of Gina K Pure Luxury cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I cut that bird out and then popped it up with dimensionals on the original image.

The yellow layer was sponged with So Saffron and Summer Sun and dry embossed with my Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder.

Thanks for looking. Have a happy Thursday!
