Birthday Bluebird

Happy Monday! I finally got to play with some of my new toys I bought on Saturday! I started with a new Sizzix EF from their Garden Flowers set. I did it on white and it was cool, but I decided to add color to the embossing using my Copics. Love that embossed stitching!

Next I decided I needed a Spellbinders die to add next to the embossing. I chose Labels Seventeen, which was also new. I added different leaves from the HCPC2252 Stems and Leaves, Pre-Cut set by Heartfelt Creations. The inks are Spanish Olive VersaMagic and Certainly Celery from SU! That formed a great background to pop an image from. I decided on the bluebird from Heartfelt's HCPC641 Bluebird with Flowers set. This was also colored with Copics and fussy cut. I added a happy birthday tag, brad, pearl, and some pink gingham ribbon. The base of my card is Creme De Menthe, Pure Luxury card stock from Gina K. Designs. That used 4 of my new scores from the show!


This card will also be entered in the Create With Bubbe Birthday Challenge. I think she must be getting tired of loading my cards, lol!

Have a great beginning to your week. It is going up to 85 degrees today! Woo Hoo! Thanks for stopping by.

Mary Anne,
I love, love the way you did this card. Everything is just so perfect. The folder is amazing, I would have never thought to buy one like this. That bird is amazing. I may just have to look around at HFC if I ever get money again! LOL. Not complaining though I'm have so much fun using up my stuff.
