Spring Birds


This card is all about birds.  I stamped the butterflies from Our Daily Bread Designs Faith Set in dark green on bright lime green and layered this on the light yellow base,  I used some new bright yellow decorative card stock from K&Co. that I just purchased at the Mighty Dollar  It had small flowers and little lime green birds on it.  I punched a bird border across the top, using  a Martha Stewart punch, and layered this in the middle of the card.  I stamped the beautiful scene from Our Daily Bread Designs' As You Graduate set in dark teal on lighter teal cardstock.  Then I used a Cuttlebug Cut N Emboss folder to create a frame from darker teal cardstock and layered all of this in the center.

I used another Cuttlebug Cut N Emboss folder to cut out the small green frame and then sanded it to bring out the design.  I layered this over an embossed bird on light yellow cardstock and popdotted this to the front right corner.
