This week's inspiration piece is a little bird mobile from Gifts Define. Isn't it the sweetest thing? Of course I immediately thought of the A Little Birdie Told Me stamp set from Stampin' Up! and based my card on those cute birds! Cheep, cheep - are we ready for Spring yet? I usually love Winter but I just can't get into it this year. He he... so I'm thinking warm thoughts. :)

Quick notes: the birds were stamped on Cameo Coral to create a scene and then stamped a second time on patterned paper, cut out and adhered over the Plain Jane ones stamped previously. I did adhere the So Saffron bird before stamping the little birdie so that they overlapped (then I glued the purple tiny birdie into place)! To finish I added a couple of sentiment circles, some pretty dotted ribbon, brads, scallop edge and paper piercing... oh and a bit of sponging! :)
