Feed the Birds!

Hello, my friends!

Happy day to you all!
Can you believe its only a week until Christmas Eve?
I've been busy doing non-crafty jobs in preparation!

Today I took a break from all that and did some playing!
 I have a new card to share with you, and it's not even a Christmas card!

I used a fabulous new All Dressed Up image for Sugar Nellie.
This one is called "Feed the Birds" and it's available right HERE at Funky Kits!

Those of you that come by often know how I feel about birds.
I bet you can tell how much fun I had making this card too.
I used some fabulous new toys to show off this wonderful image.
Don't you just love early Christmas gifts? :o)

I started with stamping the cloud background stamp with blue ink.
Next, I embossed the trees and birds stamp in black.
The sweet image is coloured with my Spectrum Noirs and popped up.
Finally, I created the card base using my fun Birds on a Wire die across the top.
Oh, I also used my new "Hello" die!

Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
Image: All Dressed Up - Feed the Birds,
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Stamps: Impression Obsession Cover-a-Card - Clouds, Birds on Trees;
Dies: Impression Obsession - Greeting Set,
Die-namites - Birds on a Wire;
Ink: Distress Ink - Black Soot, Salty Ocean;
Embossing Powder: Stamp-n-Stuff - Detail Black.

Wow! I really, really, really like the image behind the girl. The bare tree with the birds perched on the branches. That is quite an awesome image of its own. This card is so playful and vibrant. I still need to find my way to your craft room one day :D
Love you my friend- Leslie
