Stampin Up Bird

Morning everyone, I am really happy to share this card with you.  I have never had a card come together so easily and that I was so happy with.  Last night I thought I have to make a card as my desk and gear are back where they belong....although I still have a pile of paper and embellishments to sort through.  When I sat at my desk I discovered the brown punched out pieces, the bird, four pink flowers and the punched leaves.  I thought I might as well make a card with these rather than trying to find them a home.   They were left over pieces that Ruth gave to me on the Stampin Up workshop night.  

So grabbed a white pre-scored card (Blue Edge Crafts) for the base.  Spied the beautiful piece of Stampin Up design paper in my scrap box.  I had embossed it with the Victoria embossing folder last week to show Nana how the cuttlebug worked.  I layered the green paper on some black and rolled down the top.  Next I added all the pieces I had less one of the pink flowers as odd numbers always look better.  I dug out some of Stampin Up buttons and threaded twine through them and attached them to the centre of the flowers.  Finished with a perfect black Happy Birthday sticker. (Sticker Store)

Since I am getting back in the swing of things I have been checking out Denise's list of challenges over at Stamping Vacation.  I am sure that you can find a challenge there that suits your needs and tastes.  I am going to enter this in Denise's latest challenge "Animal Applause Challenge"  the card needs and animal you can hold in your lap safely.  I figure the bird is very appropriate.  P.S.  Denise is also having a DT call for all her challenges.
