Birds and Blooms

This week the challenge at Joan's Gardens is
use a branch & leaves
use a bird
use blue
use a frame of some type
Okay, this might be stretching it a bit, but I used a "door" frame....
the door die is from Cheery Lynn Designs...isn't it neat??
I got out a Sizzix die "birds and branches" I haven't used in more then 2 years....
added a little bird house....
 (do you suspose those birdies know they are waaaaaaay too big for the house?)

The background is one of my new background stamps I find myself "collecting"
I bought a mega acrylic block I am showing, as I love it

it's pricey ($25), but these stamps are HUGE....they cover a complete A-2 card
the stamps are from Impression Obession and are around $11 to $12 each....
they are so worth it....

I have been buying a couple a month,as I figure if I put the money out for the block,
I was going to have to stamps to use with it.....
I will share more of these background stamps with you in the next few days or so!!

I love the IO cover-a-card stamps too. I use my Cuttlebug C plate as a block for the stamps.

Oh Diane... your card is awesome! LOVE the birds ... they look fabulous! You know I have that mega stamp/block (about 1yr now) and have yet to use it ... you've inspired me ... maybe I'll take it out of the packaging and make something today! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog ... have a fabulous day!
