Black/White + One Challenge Birdie Card

Found this darling stamp set by Wordsworth and "had to have it". I decided that I'd use it for the Black/White + One challenge @ http://www.caardvarks.blogspot.com/ that Gwen had posted about on her blog. This set is acrylic which made it easy to add the border along the right edge. It's also fun to add the two different leaves wherever you want them on the branch! All the stamps I used are included in the set, plus another solid larger bird and the greeting, "You make my heart sing" in the same flourishy script as Thinking of you!
A really fun spring set, which would certainly make awesome cards for summer, fall & winter as well. Hmmm, a red bird with some glistening snow on the branch. Oh, that would work for our latest SBS8 challenge from Kim over at http://www.impressyourself.typepad.com/ who needs Christmas cards for heroes to be received by a friend by May 12th! Yikes, I'll be quite busy if I manage to make that deadline!
Paper: Solar White Classic Columns Cover cardstock; black cardstock
Stamp Set: Wordsworth's Heart Sing Clear Acrylic
Ink: Tsukineko's Lime Versacolor
Embellishments: Metal Dots from Joanns $1 aisle
