Baja Bird


I saw this layout (or at least something similar to it) on ICSketches and decided to try it. I got this entire card completed and decided I DID NOT like it.........but then, after looking at it for awhile I decided I really did LIKE IT! Go figure............Anyway, here's the card.

The reason I titled it "Baja Bird" is because the blue cardstock I used was Baja Breeze. I also used white, Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Parisian Breeze DP. The bird was punched out (and then popped up) with that bird punch from SU. The "branch and leaves" are from the SU die, Little Leaves. I also used my Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Labels 3 Nestabilities. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes from SU.

Thanks for stopping by.................

My favorite color combo - blue, green, brown - and my favorite theme - birds. This card has it all in my book. Very pretty.
