A Little Birdie Told me...



For this card I used cream and pink card, Bella Toile background stamp and pale plum ink pad and the 2 in 1 bird punch (all from Stampin Up) Martha Stewart Border punch (Doily Lace) die - cut flowers, Nestabilities Label dies cream ribbon and flowers from Wild orchid Crafts.


Lastly a bit of love to put it all together
Attention to detail...
Using the same background stamp Bella Toile from Stampin Up and the same pale plum ink pad I stamped both the cream and the pink card so that the theme was carried throughout the card.
I used the Martha Stewart (doily Lace) border punch on the pink card and finished by tying a cream ribbon on top.


I used the same background stamp on the wing of the bird and a little gem to dot the eye.

Jak, your cards are always spectacular!! This card is soft, and so friendly to the eyes :) I have noticed on several of your cards the white branches/leaves behind your flowers. Is that a punch from Stampin Up???
