Sweet Pea Bird Punch

Back after another break! Hope to do better this week!! Here is the first of the club cards from the weekend. We did a birthday theme this time, but any saying would do on all of them! This is the last card I came up with, and I wasn't too sure at first. But, it grew on me and I really like it as did my girls! And, any of our DSP would work on this layout!

Card base is Chocolate Chip, DSP prints are from the Sweet Pea pack in the Occasions Mini. The background stripe print was my starting point, and features Taken with Teal and Pumpkin Pie colors. The Scallop circle was cut from a Pumpkin Pie print with the Scallop Circle #2 die in the Big Shot. The edge of the scallops was sponged with Chocolate Chip. The white flower was punched from Whisper White cardstock using the Extra Large Fancy Flower. We stamped two background images from the Sprinkles set (p. 132), one in Taken with Teal and one with Pumpkin Pie. Same for the Wide Oval with the Saying. The edges are sponged with Chocolate Chip on both, and we added Happy Birthday (or another saying) from Fundamental Phrases (p 138) in Chocolate Chip on the oval. The Extra Large Two-Step Bird punch from the Occasions Mini was used on two different prints of paper to get the Bird, wing & branch. We sponged the edge of the wing with Taken with Teal to add a little dimension, then attached to the bird with a dimensional. Lastly, we attached a strip of Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain across the front and added Chocolate Chip brads on each edge. Wide Oval is attached with dimensionals to the card front, across the ribbon.

Need to play more with this bird punch!! NOTE: Most items used on this card are in the Occasions Mini catalog with ENDS April 30. No guarantee that any will make the next big catalog so get them NOW if you haven't yet!!

Back tomorrow with another club card. And, don't forget the Royal Blog tour is coming April 30-May 3. My projects are almost done!! I'm featuring the For All You Do set, page 118.
