A little bird told me...

I made this card for a challenge. For this challenge, you need to make 3 cards using stamps from a specific company and mail them in. Their people will select the winners. But, you also receive 3 cards in return of the same level of expertise you send in! I thought "how cool is that?" My first card entry is my granddaughter's birthday invitation (without the printed inside). This is my second card entry. As with card #1, this card (#2) has alot going on (for a detailed list of products, please contact me privately). I stamped the bird scene on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, and used Stampin' Up! watercolor crayons to 'paint' the image. The 'school paper' paper seemed to be lacking something, so I 2nd generation stamped the bird cages on it. The words, 'a little bird told me...' is from a generic $1 bin stamp. The flowers are my own creation. I saw this bunch of silk flowers at one of those big craft stores in the clearance bin. I took the flowers apart, added some paper flowers and some rhinestone brads. I edged all the card stock with a sponge and some antique ink, just to soften the edges.
Thanks for looking. If you follow, my daughter did like the sample baby shower invite. However, she isn't wild about the teddy bear. So, we are changing it. She has requested a lion. I will post those soon. I want to save tomorrow's post for the father's day card I am making my husband. Take care. If you have a moment, post a comment.
