A Note of Thanks - Stampin' Up! Sweet Songbirds *Sneak Peek*

   After a super busy week I have found a bit of time to play along with some of my favorite challenges.  This card is inspired by the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches.  I though the Sweet Songbirds from the upcoming annual catalog would fit this sketch perfectly and I'm also sharing at the Alphabet Challenge where they are doing the letter A for Animal Antics.

  I am using new In Colors on this card and the Sweet Sorbet is perfect for this sweet little singing bird!  I used it for the bird as well as the Card base.

  I started with a piece of Basic White and using a stencil I made with a rectangle die I blended some Pool Party ink to make a rectangle in the background to follow the sketch.  The I stamped the branch and leaves (also a new In Color; Parakeet Party).

  The bird legs are stamped in Mango Melody and then the bird and wing are stamped in Sweet Sorbet.  The bird is hand cut but the wing and beak are punched out with the Songbird Builder punch.  I popped the wing and then the whole bird up with dimensionals.  Isn't he/she such a little sassy looking bird?  His little feather tuft on the top of his just makes me smile!

  I few music notes are stamped in Memento Black to finish off this design.  I didn't add any embellishments to keep it Clean and Simple.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
