It's really nice to see and hear the spring birds when I go in the back yard - the fat robins, raucous black birds, chick-a-dees, nut hatches etc. Plus I still hear the Cardinals calling to each other across neighbours' yards.
When I saw the sketch challenge with Just Add Ink, I immediately visualized birds. Crazy huh??
I used the layering circle framelits to die cut a circle from a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that had been embossed with the chevron embossing folder. The edge was sponged with Soft Suede ink.
A piece of burlap ribbon was adhered to the card front, and the branch and flowers were attached just below it and slightly overlapping it at one end.
The circle was added with dimensionals; the bird was added using dimensionals as well. I placed a flower with a bud in the bird's mouth. And of course there are the rhinestones which I placed in the center of each flower.
The sentiment was added to the upper left circle.
