Out of Season Birdie

Hi, Friends......

Here's a card I have been wanting to make for a long, long time. So simple but fun and cute. My crafty pal, Karen Ladd, sent me some Springtime stickers a long time ago.....I think they were really for my granddaughter, but guess what! I kept a few for myself and had a card like this in mind!! :)

Then when I was scrambling around tonight finishing up all the entries in Lea Lawson's Crafty Comeback Party, I noticed she had a little mini-challenge to make an out of season card. Well, what she really said was more like put your seasonal things aside for a little while and make a card just for fun.  Voila!!! Time to finally make that springtime bird card!! 

Supplies used include:
Foam bird sticker
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set (has scallops)
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Winnie & Walter - Sketchy Thoughts die set

Darice - Birch Trees Embossing Folder
