Have a Birdie-ful Day

When I finished this card for the release I was so happy with it. It came across just as I had wanted it to. When Christine was working on the new Olivias Birds set, she showed the design team the images that she had drawn and a few of the girls started shouting out different sentiments that they would like to see and I suggested a bird bath. I was SHOCKED when Christine said that she had drawn a bird bath previously but it wasn't any good. I asked her to try again and within a matter of a couple hours (if that much!) she came out with this bird bath...it is PERFECT! I LOVE IT! This card uses one of the grass images from the Sugarplum Scenery set and everything else is from Olivias Birds set. I wish I could remember the name of the paper...it was from Stampin Up a couple years ago - I think it may be Spring Showers. Anyway, I loved that paper and still have some pieces - it worked perfectly don't you think?
Supplies Used: Close to Cocoa cs, ink, Blush Blossom cs, Whisper White cs, Certainly Celery SW Marker, Going Grey ink, Bashful Blue ink, Grosgrain Ribbon, Brads, Creamy Caramel SW Marker, Black Staz On, So Saffron SW Marker, slit punch, Olivias Birds, Sugarplum Scenery Set.
