What is up with all of these birdies?

There's been a birdie-paloza around here. 'Round here meaning on the blog and in my card making, NOT here in the house. I'd never been a "fan" of birds. That's just me though. I prefer kitties and fish. And let me tell you that my kitties would NOT stand for a bird in the house. I've seen them with the odd cricket or lizard that happens to find its way into the house. I couldn't intentionally bring a bird in here. Now bird stamps are a complete other story. I can't stop with the bird stamps. They're everywhere lately and I just can't help myself!

So, why so much talk about birds? because I made another card using "My Cute Stamps" This time I rotated the branch and made it into a tree. I paper pieced the leaves and the birdie and popped them up on dimentionals. I once again used DP from Stampin'Up!, and all of the card stock is SU as well.

I would also like to draw attention to the number of embellishments used on this card. I am quite proud of myself for using buttons, flowers, ribbon, rhinestones AND baubles. These are also my very first Prima flowers.I honestly have not used Prima flowers before today. Not sure what took me so long, but I bet this won't be the last time!

Alrighty, I'm headed up to the craft room. I had a 30% off coupon to Archivers today. yea... Have a good night!

Such a great card. Yay for you using up a bunch of embellishments.

You do know that means that you get to go buy more, right?
