A Little Birdie Told Me

Wow..it's been almost a full month since I've posted anything!  In mid March I went on a scrapbooking/cardmaking retreat with my daughter Emily.  She worked on her scrapbooks, I worked on making cards for Operation Write Home.  I will be posting several cards I made in the next couple of days, but first I wanted to post this one I made for my sister Mary's birthday.  This digital stamp called "Spring Enchantment" is from the Paper Shelter.  I thought she was very cute & the bird made me think of the Inkadinkado stamp I have that says " A Little Birdie Told Me It Was Your Birthday".  So I colored her up with my Promarkers, and laid the card out following a sketch that for the life of me I cannot remember....maybe it was "Sieze the Sketch".  Anyway...since her birthday is at the start of spring, and that's when all the birdies come back to play...I thought I would use some pastel spring colored paper on her card.  The striped background paper & light green paper I diecut using Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis Rectangles were from a small DP Collection called Emma's Garden by Jennifer Ellory.  It was free with the purchase of a Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine I bought.  I pierced the rectangle around her just to add an extra interesting touch.  The rest of the paper, buttons, jewels & flower were from my stash. The flower was white and I colored it with a Promarker so that it matched closely with the blue paper I used. And it was a little crazy adding each one of those green gems separately around the die cut ( I thought I would LOSE my mind)!! But I think it turned out pretty & I hope my sister likes it!!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
