You know it is almost Spring when the chirping of birds wakes you in the morning! To celebrate the return of the birds I made this quick and easy card using the Kim Hughes Mocha Chica set. I must admit that I really really wanted to add ribbon... but I resisted! :)
Quick notes on the main image: I stamped the branch in Chocolate Chip Classic ink on white cardstock and then airbrushed the background using a couple Copic markers. Next I stamped the birdie on a scrap of white cardstock, colored with some different shades of red and cut out. I added a little rhinestone over the eye. I sponged the edge with Creamy Caramel Classic ink, paper pierced and layered on Chocolate Chip cardstock.
For the sentiment I stamped "hello" from the same set on another piece of white cardstock and trimmed adding a flag look to the end. I then sponged with more Creamy Caramel and attached to my card with a dimensional in the middle. I then added the three buttons by sewing them in place with linen thread (through the designer paper and Chocolate Chip layers).
